Ipswich Town winger Stephen Hunt has extended his stay with the club until the end of the season.

The 32-year-old signed a short-term deal with Town last month, but has impressed enough to warrant an extension:

“It goes without saying that I’m delighted to be staying at Ipswich Town,” he told the club's official website.

“When I first came here it was to get my foot in the door so to speak, to see how I got on with the club and how the club got on with me.

“I think I’ve played okay and the manager has shown faith in me. Now I have to improve and show that I merit that longer deal.

“I’m very happy to stay here as I feel really settled and hopefully we can crack on now and push for the top six.”

Hunt is the second man to commit his future to Town today after former Wolves teammate Sylvan Ebanks-Blake also agreed a contract until the end of the season.
