Danny Higginbotham: Unlikely to stay at Ipswich

Town on Friday agreed an extended deal with Stoke for the defender, who arrived at the start of September on a deal until the new year.

But Higginbotham, 34, who has made 12 appearances for the Championship club, now looks set for a move elsewhere after rival clubs showed interest in his services.

Manager Mick McCarthy told Ipswich's official website: "We had agreed a deal with Danny to stay but there has been interest in him from other clubs.

"That comes as no surprise as he's a terrific professional and that's why we wanted to keep him here.

"He wants the chance to earn a permanent move and preferably something which is closer to his home.

"I can understand that and if it works out for him then I wish him all the best of luck."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
