Bersant Celina has insisted he is enjoying his Ipswich Town learning curve.

Having now forced his way into Mick McCarthy’s starting line-up, the Manchester City loanee has seven Ipswich goals to his name and has become an important part of a Blues side which is the Championship’s second highest scoring.

Celina admitted he is learning some aspects of the game that he has not been asked to do before and is enjoying picking up tips from the club’s senior pros.

“I’m learning a lot of stuff from him now and it’s different to Manchester City because there is a different philosophy but this is something I need right now and I’m in a really good place,” he said.
