Ipswich boss McCarthy happy keeping Palace ace Joniesta

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy is surprised Crystal Palace allowed them to extend the loan of Jonny Williams.

Their change of heart is a massive boost to the Tractor Boys' hopes of reaching the Championship play-offs.

McCarthy revealed: "We all said our farewells to Jonny last week after our home draw with Nottingham Forest.

"I even made a presentation to him of an Ipswich shirt with his nickname - Joniesta - on the back."

He added: "We're all chuffed that Jonny is still with us.

"He's a lovely young man, a smashing kid, who plays with a smile on his face. He's a really talented player as well."
