Ipswich skipper hoping for Portman stay

Published Add your comment

Ipswich captain Jon Walters is hoping to still be at Portman Road next season despite reports linking him with other clubs.

The 26-year-old, who joined from Chester in January 2007, has no intention of leaving the Championship outfit at the end of the season.

He told the East Anglian Daily Times: "As far as I know I'll be here next season. This is my plan. I think these stories may have started because I'm now renting a house in the town after selling mine. But this is because a proposed purchase broke down."

Walters is determined to help his side end the season on a winning note with victory against Sheffield United on Sunday, adding: "We're desperate for a good result against Sheffield United to give our fans something to cheer - and to sign off on a high note.

"If we can beat the Blades it will bode well for next season and will give us momentum going into pre-season training."
