Town have been given a boost by the news that Aaron Cresswell has signed a new contract until the summer of 2017.
The 23-year-old defender made it an early birthday present for Sunday by putting pen to paper on the deal this afternoon, which sees him extend his current agreement by a further two years.
“I had about 18 months to run on my contract so obviously I’m delighted to have extended that,” Cressy told the Club website.
“I am really enjoying my football here. There is a good feel about the place and it’s enjoyable coming to work every day.
“I feel I have progressed as a player and like any professional, I want to get to the top and that means playing in the Premier League. Hopefully I can do that with Ipswich.”
