Ipswich Town captain Luke Chambers has signed a new three-year deal, with the option of a further 12 months, at Portman Road.

The 29-year-old, who was due to be out of contract in the summer, said: “I’m absolutely loving my football right now and I couldn’t be happier at Ipswich.

“I’m happy here, I’m proud to be captain and, most importantly, I want to play for Mick McCarthy.”

The former Nottingham Forest defender, a free transfer addition in 2012, has made 105 starts and scored six goals during his two-and-a-bit seasons with the Blues.

After featuring at right-back for almost the entirety of last term, the skipper has recently switched back to his preferred centre-half role and helped Town record a seven-game unbeaten run.
