Mick McCarthy has rubbished reports suggesting Crystal Palace midfielder Jonny Williams could be returning on loan to Ipswich Town.

We discovered before yesterday’s 2-0 win over Rotherham that Williams was poised for a return and the plot thickened when managing director Ian Milne hinted to BBC Radio Suffolk’s ‘Life’s a Pitch’ that new faces could be on their way.

However, when asked the question by the EADT and Ipswich Star, McCarthy said: “Is the managing director conducting press conferences before the game now?

“I would say what is he doing conducting press conferences before the game, I thought that was my job.

“Our lads are flying and I am not looking for anybody, I was asked that question the other day.

“If they want to send him across in the car tomorrow, I will take hold of him mind!”
