Cresswell signs new deal
IPSWICH Town left-back Aaron Cresswell superb start to life in the Championship club has been rewarded with a longer and more lucrative contract.
The 21-year-old penned a three year deal in the summer after being signed from League One side Tranmere.
And having made the step up in division with ease – the young Liverpudlian the only Blues player to have started every league and cup match so far – manager Paul Jewell has moved quickly to offer a new deal.
His new contract will run until 2015, with there also being an option of a fifth season on top of that.
“Obviously I’m delighted to have been offered and signed a new contract,” said Cresswell, who is suspended for tomorrow’s trip to Millwall.
