Academy graduate wants to prolong Portman Road career and admits he has a big few months ahead of him on the pitch

Luke Hyam accepts it’s a vital second half of the season for him as he looks to win a new contract at Portman Road. 

The midfielder is back in action after 11 months on the sidelines following a knee ligament injury and could make his first League start at home this season when Blues take on Reading tonight.

“This is a big few months for me,” the 24-year-old said in an interview in tonight’s matchday programme.

“My contract is up in the summer and I’ve got to show the manager that I’m worth keeping. 

“That is one of the reasons I went to Rotherham on loan, to get games under my belt and to get that match sharpness. I needed to get back to my best fitness wise. 

“I feel I have done that and now I’ve got to keep my head down, keep working hard and show that I’m worth a new contract because I definitely want to stay here.”
