Ipswich Town’s loan defender Matthew Pennington has talked about his future at Everton beyond this season and the opportunity on hand at Portman Road this term in and interview with TWTD.

The defender was pretty clear over his intentions beyond his time with Town, stating “I hope to go back to Everton a better player.

“That’s one thing I want to achieve as a result of going out on loan and even if my future isn’t going to be at Everton, if I improve as a player it could lead to me moving somewhere else and that would be brilliant.

“I’ve no idea how it’s going to work out at Goodison. I just want to play games at the moment, so hopefully, I will do that here – and enjoy my time with Ipswich – and then we’ll see what’s next.”

The 23-year-old also discussed the competition for places at the back looking forward.

“Now that I know I’m an Ipswich player for the season I can focus on that and put all my efforts into helping the club get results.

“I know I can’t take anything for granted as I only played against Norwich because Toto Nsiala was suspended.

“But competition for places is very healthy for teams and for performances. The decision is up to the manager but whether I start a game or come off the bench, I’ll always give my all.”

With Ipswich making the trip up to the KCom Stadium to face Hull City this weekend, Pennington could be in line for another chance to impress come Saturday.
