Championship Ipswich Town cannot afford to bring Celtic striker Daryl Murphy to Portman Road permanently, according to boss Paul Jewell.

Jewell told BBC Radio Suffolk: "I don't think that will happen although we would have liked to have kept Daryl.

"He's got a year left on his contract on good wages."

The 29-year-old’s performances this season had urged Jewell to say he would like to sign the former Sunderland forward, but that now looks unlikely.
