Ipswich Town winger Alan Quinn will not be one of the players reportedly suing West Ham.

Quinn was with Sheffield United when they were controversially relegated and it has been suggested in the wake of the Carlos Tevez affair that players affected would look for compensation from the London club after missing out on bonuses and wages they would have received by staying in the Premier League.

But Quinn insisted: “I've read the stories but don't know anything more about it. It's not something I'm considering doing."

After playing his part in helping town to a 3-0 win over Barnsley, Quinn is hoping Town can extend their unbeaten run to six when they visit Charlton this weekend.

He said: “It was great to get three points.

"We know we can play better but getting the points was the most important thing.

"Performance-wise, we probably did better against Reading and Wigan.

"Winning was everything, though, and the fans were great.”

Although Barnsley keeper Heinz Muller made two howlers to gift Town a pair of goals, he also made a couple of outstanding saves, including one to deny Quinn his first Portman Road goal.

Quinn said: “Their goalkeeper gave us two goals but at least we took advantage and scored goals from his mistakes.

"The lads at the back did well and they had a busy night against Barnsley.

"They're not a bad passing side and they've got some very good passers in their midfield."

With the Blues about to play their sixth game in 16 days, changes may again be made but have no fresh injuries.

Ben Thatcher misses out on a return to his former club with a torn thigh muscle, while Moritz Volz is recovering from a hamstring problem and Pim Balkestein has a groin injury.
