IPSWICH Town striker Jordan Rhodes has signed a new two-year professional contract to stay at Ipswich Town.

The 17-year-old, who was signed for an initial £5,000 from Barnsley's Academy, leads the attack this afternoon when the reserves open the defence of their Combination Reserve League title at Northampton (Sixfields, 2pm).

Rhodes will line up alongside Danny Haynes, who was sent off in last Tuesday's Champions Cup win over Brighton. His suspension does not kick in until the end of August, as reserve league rules are different to those in the Championship.

Haynes will miss the away trips to Watford and West Brom and the home match against Leicester City, while Fabian Wilnis' dismissal against Plymouth means an automatic three-match ban starting immediately.

Matt Richards, Shane Supple, Jaime Peters and Sito Castro are also involved in what will otherwise be a young side.
