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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
