The former Aston Villa and West Ham midfielder had been on a short-term deal at Portman Road, but the club had offered him the chance to stay until the end of the season.

But Reo-Coker rejected Ipswich's offer and he has now become a free agent.

Reo-Coker was included in the squad for Saturday's game at Cardiff but he did not travel after talks with Town boss Mick McCarthy.

"Nigel is not staying. Fair play to him, he came in suited and booted yesterday and ready to travel but he wants a longer term contract," said McCarthy.

"I understand that. I think he may have some other offers. He's been great but if he not going to stay then there was no point in him travelling."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
