Midfielder sees deal at Portman Road extended for a further 12 months after exercising a clause in his existing contract
Town midfielder Jonathan Douglas has triggered a clause in his contract which sees him extend his stay at Portman Road for a further 12 months.
The Republic of Ireland international, who joined the Blues in the summer from weekend opponents Brentford, has become a regular in Mick McCarthy’s side and has featured 33 times in the League.
Jonathan has exercised the clause and is delighted to be continuing his Town career, with three points against former side Brentford being eyed up next by the midfielder.
“I’m delighted to be staying and I still think I can play for another couple of years,” explained the former Blackburn, Leeds and Swindon player.
“I have reached the number of games that triggers a new contract for me, so as far as I’m concerned I will be here next season.
“I’m really enjoying it here and want to carry on playing as long as possible.
“We face Brentford this weekend and hopefully we can get a win and push for the Play-Offs, as it’s still a possibility.
“We have to have belief that we can make it. We have to keep going, keep working hard and see where it takes us.
“We have a really good squad here and with Didz [David McGoldrick] and Bish [Teddy Bishop] back, that has been made stronger.”
