Emyr Huws has revealed that he would like to play for Ipswich Town next season.

The Welshman, on loan from Championship rivals Cardiff City until the end of the season, scored a great goal against Newcastle United this afternoon in an excellent 3-1 win for Ipswich.

Asked if he’d like to play for Ipswich next season, Huws said: “Hopefully!”

“I’m not sure what’s going to happen at the minute, but I’d like to (stay here).

“We’ve just been focusing on getting results and points, and that’s what we’ll continue to do until the end of the season before we go from there.”

Huws continued: “I’ve been really enjoying my time here, the boys are top class. The staff and everyone else at the club are really welcoming and I’ve been really enjoying playing in this team, there’s real quality.

“Didsy (David McGoldrick) and Searsy (Freddie Sears) put the graft in and hound defenders, they help us a lot by putting teams under pressure and they’ve both been clinical today and recently.”

Huws was also on target alongside Sears and McGoldrick, and was pleased with his thumping volley - Town’s third and final goal of an unforgettable afternoon.

“It was nice to get a goal,” said the Welshman.

“It was a great ball from Pits (Brett Pitman) and luckily, I put it in, I was really happy with that.

“We deserved what we got today. I think the performances have been there (this season), but we just haven’t been clinical enough.

“We’ve played against the big clubs (previously this season) and been the better team without putting the ball in the net when we should have.”

Huws loved playing in front of a bumper 25,000 plus crowd and says that a positive atmosphere can go a long way in helping the team.

“Everyone’s buzzing in big occasions, and it was a great atmosphere today, credit to the fans,” said Huws.

“We all enjoyed it and I hope they did as well.

“That win had been coming I think. Credit to the gaffer, his game plan was bang on, we pressed them high and hit them on the counter attack.

“The fans were really good, the support was immense, and that’s what we need. We’re going to try and emulate that performance in the remainder of the season.

“It was a really good performance, we imposed our game on them and they didn’t have answers.”
