PAUL Jewell has spoken to David Norris again, in an attempt to sign up his skipper beyond this season.

Norris’ agent has made it known in past weeks that Jewell can plan “without Norris” for next season, but a new deal is not dead-in-the-water yet, despite interest shown from other clubs, led by Portsmouth.

Norris’ contract expires at the end of this season, and the chances are that the 30-year-old will leave Portman Road this summer. But Jewell is doing everything in his power to retain the services of his midfield general.

“I spoke to Chuck yesterday as well,” revealed Jewell during this morning’s press conference.
