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."

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
