DEAN Bowditch says he is confident his Ipswich Town career is not over.

The young forward, currently on loan with Northampton Town, was identified last week as a player the Suffolk club may look to ease out in their summer rebuilding.

Bowditch has impressed intermittently during his spell at Sixfields, and formed a lively-looking Norwich-Ipswich partnership with Ian Henderson in the second half of Saturday's defeat at Leeds.

The loan has already been extended once, and Bowditch - a former England youth international - is happy to stay, play, and improve, at least for the time being.

"They were happy for me to extend it for another month and as long as I'm playing then they're happy for me to stay," said Bowditch.

"I've spoken to Jim Magilton and he's been very good to me, he's given me little tip-offs about when there has been people watching me.

"I've done well in a couple of games and he's told me where I can do better in others.

"It's just about improving, that's why I'm here, to improve and try to get a couple of goals. It improves my confidence and improves the confidence in me that the Ipswich manager has."

Bowditch could be made available for transfer at the end of the season, but unsurprisingly for someone who has been at Portman Road since childhood, the forward is not yet ready to close the door on the club.

"It depends on a lot of things," he said. "How I do in the next month, how Ipswich are doing, how many injuries they've got back there.

"If they get a couple of people out, they'll be calling me straight back.

"It's a funny game. You might play badly one week but then have a blinder the next and you get called back. Stranger things have happened. I'm just working hard on my game and we'll see what happens."
