Boss hails Chambo display after transfer deadline day interest

Mick McCarthy had praise for Luke Chambers after the skipper had been the subject of interest from Nottingham Forest on transfer deadline day. 

The former Forest defender, who has been linked with a return to the City Ground all day, led Blues out against Derby in tonight’s clash at Portman Road.

“There has been interest from Forest in Chambo,” revealed the Town boss to Ipswich Player HD. 

“They came in on the day before the window closed and it wasn’t a deal that could be done. 

“I thought Chambo did remarkably well to play like he did with that going on today. I didn’t want to lose him and I didn’t consider leaving him out of tonight’s game because if I had done that, I would have lost him anyway.”
