Ipswich stay likely for Stoke defender Higginbotham

Stoke City defender Danny Higginbotham is ready to sign permanently with Ipswich Town.

Stoke City defender Danny Higginbotham is ready to sign permanently with Ipswich Town.

The 33-year-old defender says he would consider staying on at Ipswich when his loan spell ends in a fortnight before sealing a long-term move to when the transfer window re-opens.

"He's a great lad, a great ambassador for this club and one of the bedrocks it has been built on," said manager Tony Pulis.

"But I understand his wish to be playing, especially at this stage of his career, so if I can help him I certainly will."
