Striker praises the Town faithful after playing final game for Blues and doesn't rule out a return to Portman Road in the future

DJ Campbell has thanked the Blue Army for their support during his loan spell and has hinted he may be back in a Town shirt in the future.

The striker, who is Blues’ top scorer, has returned to parent-club QPR after seeing his loan at Portman Road cut short and has admitted he is unsure as to what the future now holds although Town boss Mick McCarthy has stated he would like to keep the 31 year-old.

“I’ve spoke to the gaffer and he’s made it clear that he would like me here. He’s put something on the table and if everything is right for me and my family, then staying here would certainly be an option for me,” said DJ, in an interview with Ipswich Player to be broadcasted tomorrow.

“I stand by my original choice to come here on loan ahead of the other clubs that were interested and you can see that Ipswich Town is going places.

“The fans have been great towards me and I can’t thank them enough. They’ve been top notch and even when we were struggling they were right behind us.

“The messages I’ve received on Twitter from the fans have been humbling and I’d like to think I’ve done what I set out to do, which was to score goals and help this great Club move away from the bottom of the league.  

“For now though I will be returning to QPR and they are in their right to do that as I’m still their player. We will have to see what Harry’s (Redknapp) plans are, as he holds the key, but you never know what the future holds.”
