Ipswich Town captain Sam Morsy says he would love to sign a new contract at the club and see out his career in Suffolk.

The highly-competitive midfielder was a real driving force last season, both on and off the field, as the Blues secured automatic promotion in League One.

Set to turn 32 in September, he now heads into the final year of his contract at Portman Road.

"It's good that some of the lads and the manager have been rewarded this summer," said Morsy, referring to the fact that boss Kieran McKenna and topscorer Conor Chaplin have both recently penned new four and three year deals respectively, when asked about his contract situation.

"There's no news on myself. I just keep my head down, keep working hard and see what happens."

Asked if he could see himself finishing his career at the club, Morsy said: "Definitely. I'm loving my time at the club, feel really settled and I'm really enjoying my football. It's an honour to captain this club, it really is.

"I'm just focusing on us hopefully having another really good season."

The seven-cap Egypt international, who played in the second-tier for Middlesbrough, Wigan and Barnsley, continued: "It's been a while since we've been in the Championship as a football club.

"We just have to attack this season and make sure we don't just make up the numbers. That's what myself and the manager will be pushing for.

"It will be a big step up. Pre-season is not just a time to get back to where you were but to progress as well. No doubt the manager and staff have spoken about ways we can do that.

"It's a new challenge and we're going to have to be better than we were last season. A lot better actually."
