Defender thankful for Portman Road chance and is looking at the long-term picture with the Blues

Sean St Ledger is relishing the challenge of trying to win a longer term contract at Portman Road.

The Republic of Ireland international has signed a one month deal with Blues as a free agent after ending his stay at Leicester last summer.

“I’m thankful to the manager for giving me a chance,” Sean told Ipswich Player.

“I’ve been out of football for quite a while and I’m pretty lucky to join a club that is fourth in the table and have aspirations of getting in the Premier League.

“I’ve been close to coming here before. I spoke to the manager last year about joining but I was in the Leicester team at the time so things didn’t materialise and I would have joined the Club when Paul Jewell was manager but one of the players got injured at Leicester so they wouldn’t let me go.

“It’s great to finally be here and I’m relishing the opportunity. I know I have a lot of work to do but I’ve got to try and force my way into the team and show the manager what I can do.

“I’m here for a month at the moment but hopefully I can extend that contract until the end of the season and maybe beyond that. I’m up for that challenge.”
