Striker has revealed he'd happily play for Town for the rest of his career if given the opportunity as he looks to bounce back from knee injury

  • Striker would end career at Portman Road
  • Say he's 'in love' with Ipswich Town
  • Determined to come back stronger from injury

Noel Hunt has revealed that if he had his way, he would end his career playing for Ipswich Town.

The striker, currently recovering from a knee injury that could keep him sideline for the rest of the season, is out of contract at Portman Road in the summer but admits he would love to stay if given the opportunity.

“I absolutely love it here. It was the same when I was at Reading, that was my first love, as everyone there made me feel welcome during my six years but I feel the same about Ipswich,” the striker told the official Club website.

“I didn’t think I’d ever get the same feeling of a club as I did at Reading but I feel so at home here.

“It’s everything about the place. The environment, the manager, the staff, the lads and even the people working at the Club in the offices- it’s an amazing place to work each day.

“You don’t get that very often and I know I don’t want to go anywhere else. My contract is up at the end of the season so who knows what will happen.

“I want to stay here though. I love the town, the place we live in is great- it’s out in the middle of nowhere and it reminds me of home.

“If I had it my way, I’d finish my career at Ipswich Town.

“You get injuries- that’s part of the game- but when you are on the sidelines it gives you time to reflect on things.

“I want to play football for as long as I can now. I still feel I’ve got a good few years left in me and I’m determined to come back stronger than ever from this injury.”
