But Town's Championship battle is defender's priority for now

Jordan Spence says extending his stay at Town beyond this season would definitely appeal but for now his focus is on helping Blues stay up.

The former England U21 international signed a deal until the end of the campaign in January after spending the first six months of the season without a club. 

He has impressed in that time and manager Mick McCarthy has hinted that he would be keen to keep the defender. 

“I’m thoroughly enjoying my time here,” said Jordan in an interview in Tuesday’s matchday programme for the game against Wigan.

“I wouldn’t have said I was complacent about things before but certainly when you have had that experience of being out of the game for that long, you realise how lucky you are to be playing at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon.

“It’s been great to be back in the thick of things. If the chance came to stay here, obviously that would appeal but that’s not a priority for me at the moment.

“It’s about being part of putting on a positive spin to the end of the season here. It’s a strange one because we have hardly lost a game over the last 10 or 11 matches, or whatever it is but we have not won many either.

“You don’t lose one game in 10 though if you are not a decent side. We know we have got some work ahead of us but it’s about taking each step as it comes.”
