Forward not fazed by speculation as he looks to build on last season

Kayden Jackson says that his concentration remains firmly on Town ahead of the upcoming campaign.

The striker, who is contracted at Portman Road until the end of the 2020/21 season - with Blues having an optional extra year, has been the subject of media speculation regarding his future at the Club.

"At the end of the day, I’m an Ipswich player and I’ve got a contract here for potentially another two years," he told iFollow Ipswich.

"For me, it’s all about concentrating on the football and the season ahead.

"Whatever is going on is separate to everything. I don’t really deal too much on that side, it’s down to the agent. Last season was a massive disappointment for all of us. I’m just looking to improve on what I did and hopefully we can get the end result that we want."

Kayden found the net 11 times and picked up seven assists before the 2019/20 campaign was curtailed, a record he hopes to improve on in the upcoming season.

"The goals and assists that I contributed to; a lot of people would be happy with that with it ending early," he continued.

"I always think that I can improve. I feel like I should’ve had more goals, I should’ve had more assists. Obviously, that would’ve helped the team finish higher in the league.

"Regardless of the early finish, on the back of the disappointment we would’ve had that hunger. Maybe for some people it’s good to calm down the frustration we had but for me it’s just about getting back into it, whether that’s pre-season games or when the season starts."
