Murph signs new two year contract and then targets top six

Daryl Murphy has signed a new two year contract that will keep him at Portman Road until the summer of 2016. 

The Republic of Ireland international’s current deal would have expired next summer but he has now pledged his future to Blues for two more years, with another 12 month option on top. 

Daryl joined Town last summer after three separate loan spells at the Club and enjoyed his best season in front of goal, finishing Blues’ second top scorer with 13 goals and playing a key role in Mick McCarthy’s team’s push for the Play-Offs.

His form also helped the 31-year-old return to the international scene after a six year absence when he won his 10th cap against Serbia in March. 

“I’m really enjoying my football here so I’m obviously delighted to have signed a new contract,” Murph told the Club website. 

“I’ve said before, Ipswich Town feels like home for me – both on and off the pitch. My family love the area and that’s very important to me.

“We are making progress as a football club and the challenge now is to continue that next season and hopefully get into that top six. That’s the target.”
