Ipswich Town star Bartosz Bialkowski has taken to Twitter to rubbish reports that he almost left the club in the summer.

The star stopper was widely quoted yesterday in an interview reportedly given to Polish broadcaster TVP Sport, in which he said he almost joined Burnley but the clubs could not agree terms.

But in a tweet after a Town fan had remarked on the story, Bialkowski said: “Just to make it clear, I have never had any contact with Burnley so no idea where that come from.”

Speaking exclusively to the EADT and Star before the season, the 6ft 4ins keeper admitted there had been interest in his signature over the summer.

- Mick: This is my best squad yet

He told us: ““There is some speculation, there is some interest, but there are no firm offers.

“It’s hard for me to talk about it because I’m not sure how I’m going to react to that if someone comes in and offers silly money to Ipswich. Only then could we start to talk about it.

“You get calls all the time from other agents saying ‘I can get you that and I can get you this’. I’ve been in this situation before when I was younger and all the papers were talking about me and about top clubs.

“I learnt my lesson. I’m grounded. I’ve still got a contract at Ipswich (2018, with option until 2019). If anything happens then Ipswich have got to say ‘yes, we want to sell Bart’ and then we will see.

- Mick doesn’t trust the table just yet

“You just never know what’s around the corner. Everyone wants to play at the highest level possible. I’m the same, but I’m not forcing anything. I’m not in the gaffer’s office every week saying ‘I want to go, I want to leave’ because it’s not like that.”

Sheffield Wednesday head coach Carlos Carvalhal has called for the club’s supporters to get behind his players ahead of tomorrow night’s televised Championship match at Ipswich Town.

Suffolk FA Women’s Cup Second Round

Ipswich Athletic 0

Ipswich Town Ladies Development side 14

Ipswich Town Ladies Development side progressed to the next round of the Suffolk FA Cup with a massive 14-0 thumping of Suffolk league side Ipswich Athletic, writes Liam Young.

Focus on the strengths, recognise the weaknesses and enjoy the ride.

“We might not be the best, but we keep going. It’s an endearing quality we have.”

Watch match highlights of Ipswich Town’s 2-2 draw at Hull City on Saturday.

A point at Hull City should not be seen as anything other than a good result ordinarily and the fact that we gained that point with a late equaliser certainly felt better than a loss. But were they not there for the taking on the day?

It was certainly an eventful day for David McGoldrick.
