Ipswich Town striker Kayden Jackson has had his say on Twitter on reports that he has been exiled from the Tractor Boys’ squad (see tweet below).
Seen talk of me training with the u23s due to transfers not materialising and me wanting out of Ipswich.
I am a PROFESSIONAL football player and will always carry myself as such. Wherever I am, my desire to win and perform for my club will never be questioned.

The East Anglian Daily Times suggested has been training with their Under-23’s over recent weeks.
Jackson, who is 26 years old, has clarified his stance on the situation and insists his commitment shouldn’t be questioned.
He was the subject of a loan-to-buy bid by Huddersfield Town on deadline day last month but a move back to the Championship didn’t materialise. However, he hasn’t been involved with Paul Lambert’s side since.
He is no stranger to being linked with a move to the second tier and was a target for Stoke City and Coventry City in the summer transfer window, as reported at the time by Football Insider.
Jackson has scored one goal in 12 games in all competitions this term and hasn’t quite managed to live up to the 11 he bagged in the last campaign.
He is out of contract at the end of this season and his long-term future in East Anglia hangs in the balance.
The former Swindon Town, Bradford City, Barnsley and Accrington Stanley man has proven he can score goals in League One and leaving him out isn’t helping anybody.
All signs point to a departure this summer unless Ipswich give him the chance to get back into their side.
