Tommy Smith: Has secured his future at Ipswich

The New Zealand international, 23, earned the Town Supporters' Player of the Year award this season and manager Mick McCarthy has moved to extend his stay.

Smith told Ipswich Player: "I'm delighted to extend my stay at Town. It's great that the club have shown loyalty with me and that I've shown my loyalty to the club as well.

"I've been here since I was 16 years-old and I love the club. Hopefully I can be here for a few more years to come and we can be successful.

"The club means a lot to me and I've developed a great relationship with the fans. It's also great to see players coming out of the Academy and into the first-team, like myself, Luke Hyam and Josh Carson."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
