Kayden Jackson has ended speculation surrounding his future by signing a new two-year contract at Ipswich Town.

The striker, who joined the Tractor Boys in the summer of 2018, had been due to become a free agent at the end of June when his previous deal was set to expire.

That has resulted in reports that the 28-year-old could be heading for pastures new, but he has now committed his future to Portman Road until the end of the 2023/24 campaign.

Speaking to Ipswich's website, Jackson, who saw last term ended prematurely by injury, said: "I'm really pleased that it's done.

"Because of the injury, the negotiations have been going on for a little while, but I am delighted to have it sorted now.

"We have had positive discussions ever since I got back into the team and I have loved playing under the manager. I play my best football when I am happy and it's been nice to get that feeling back.

"In terms of the injury, the rehab is going well. I have a big summer ahead and I am already looking forward to next season."

Meanwhile, manager Kieran McKenna added: "Kayden’s attitude and personality have really impressed me since I arrived, and we are delighted he is staying with us.

"He’s an incredibly hard worker in training and, before the injury, that hard work was showing in his performances. His rehab is going well and we are all looking forward to seeing him back in action come next season."

News of Jackson's stay follows yesterday's confirmation that Wes Burns had put pen to paper on a new deal with the club.
