"I want to be successful, happy and enjoying my football"

Kayden Jackson says that he has loved every day of working with Town boss Kieran McKenna.

The striker's contract was set to expire this summer but, after featuring promintently under Kieran during the second half of the campaign before injury curtailed his season prematurely, he has signed a new two-year deal with the Club.

Having initially signed for the Blues in 2018, the 28-year-old will now remain at Portman Road until 2025. 

"Unfortunately, opportunities didn’t come as often as I would have liked at the beginning of the season," he told iFollow Ipswich.

"I bided my time, worked hard and thankfully got my chance. 

"I suppose that’s why I’ve been able to sign a new contract; because when I got my chance I took it. 

"I have loved every day of it under the boss. I can remember having a conversation with him on the very first day he was at the training ground. He was so positive and I was looking forward to getting on the grass straight away. I just wanted to show him what I couldd do.

"It’s been a good time for me under him. All I want is to be out there helping the lads and I thought I could add something to the team.

"Next year I want to be successful, happy and enjoying my football. I want to get the fans cheering and smiling, and put on a good show for everyone."
