Luke Chambers opens new Ipswich Town contract talks

17 October 2014

Ipswich Town captain Luke Chambers has confirmed he is in talks over a new contract.

The 29-year-old arrived at Portman Road in July 2012 after an impressive spell with Sky Bet Championship rivals Nottingham Forest.

Chambers has made 106 appearances for Town, scoring six goals, and has helped the club make a fine start to the 2014/15 season.

He told the club's official website: "We've begun talks on a new contract to keep me here and hopefully that can get sorted out soon. I certainly don't want to go anywhere.

"I'm absolutely loving my football right now and I couldn't be happier at Ipswich. I saw a few rumours in the paper saying I might leave for another club at the end of the season but that's news to me!

"I'm happy here, I'm proud to be captain and, most importantly, I want to play for Mick McCarthy.

"I'm back playing in the centre of defence as you know and it's no secret how much I've wanted to play there.

"It's unfortunate for Tommy [Smith] who did nothing wrong and I feel for him but at the same time he's pushing us all hard to get back in the side.

"On a personal level I feel I'm back to playing my best football and although I gave my all at right-back, I was never going to be the attacking-style full-back that we have with Ty [Mings] and Jonny Parr."
