Ipswich Town star Jonas Knudsen has shed some light on the situation surrounding his future at Portman Road in an interview with the club website earlier today.

The Danish international defender’s current deal expires at the end of this season after the club triggered a one-year extension clause written into his contract, but there appears to be no new deal on the horizon.

Speaking to the club website, Knudsen said “I love to play here and I’ve loved being here ever since I arrived. The people have made me feel so welcome and I feel like Ipswich is another home for me now.

“The situation is the same, though. I haven’t heard from the owner and there’s nothing really to do until we start talking.

“If we come to an agreement then I’m absolutely ready to start a new deal here. Until then it’s just about playing – life isn’t always simple but I will do my best for this Club as I always do.”

With his immediate future dealt with, the full-back discussed the Tractor Boys’ upcoming Championship fixtures.

“This is a big week for us because we have three games and two of those are at home. I think we have to make sure that we get a good amount of points from these games coming up and really that has to start tomorrow.

“Hull will no doubt be a tough trip and although they haven’t had the best of starts, they still have good players and we have to make sure we’re at our best.

“If that’s the case then we have a good chance of getting something there and taking some confidence into the matches at Portman Road next week.”
