MICKY Adams' sacking at Coventry City has left Darren Currie in limbo but the Blues winger last night admitted he still harboured hopes of securing a new deal at Portman Road.

The 32-year-old is also realistic enough to accept that it is highly unlikely and his future lays away from Ipswich with a clutch of clubs interested in his services.

At least two other Championship sides have shown an interest in Currie with even more in the lower leagues waiting to pounce.

Currie said: “I'm saddened to see Micky go. He is a nice man and good manager but this is a results business and of late they were not what the club expected.

“It is unclear if a move to Coventry is still on for me, although the caretaker manager Adrian Heath appears to like what I can do.

“As far as I'm concerned it is just a case of waiting to see and in the meantime working hard to get into the Ipswich side.

“I have not entirely given up hope of earning a new deal here although Jim has been quite honest with me and has said my future is probably away from Ipswich.

“If they are to sell me, and I know they want a small fee for me, then it will need to be done in the next two weeks or so before the window closes.”

Currie, who lives in mid-Essex, missed the FA Cup win over Chester with the flu but is back in training and looking to play a part in Saturday's clash at home to Colchester.

Currie said: “After being involved at Sunderland I was hoping to play in the cup match on Tuesday but I was laid low. I'm back now though and would love to play against Colchester. We really owe them one after losing at Layer Road and I would love to get one over on them.”

Adrian Heath has taken over at the Ricoh Stadium for the interim following the departure of Adams.
