Ipswich Town keeper Bartosz Bialkowski has revealed that a number of clubs made enquiries for him during the January transfer window.

The 29-year-old was the Blues’ ‘Player of the Year’ last season and has been hailed as the best keeper in the Championship by manager Mick McCarthy. He is contracted to the Blues until the summer of 2018 with the club having an option to extend for a further 12 months.

“There weren’t any concrete offers in January but there were quite a few enquiries,” the custodian told Polish website

“The transfer would have never happened anyway as my bosses were pretty clear about it: you’re not for sale. We’ll see what the future holds but I’m not stressing over it.

“I feel very good in Ipswich but I’ve also got my personal goals. I still dream about Premier League.”

Top flight clubs are understood to have been keeping tabs on the former Southampton and Notts County man, while there was reported interest from Chinese clubs in January 2016.

We have assembled a group of Town fans to predict the outcome of Ipswich games and have their say on what’s going on at Portman Road.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy says he’s ready to start experimenting with his side now that a Championship play-off place looks out of reach.

Bartosz Bialkowski and Ipswich Town still have ‘a couple of things to sort’ before the Polish goalkeeper signs his new contract with the club.

Mick McCarthy shouted ‘f*** off’ in the direction of – but, he insists, not at – Ipswich Town fans after his side took the lead at Norwich on Sunday. Today the Blues boss, who has faced plenty of toxic chants over the last 12 months, was quizzed on the incident ahead of tomorrow’s home game against Cardiff.

Mick McCarthy has no new injury worries for tomorrow night’s visit of Cardiff City but admits he could make changes to his side as he prepares for the second of three games in just seven days.

A Suffolk girl who braved the North Sea for the hospice that cared for her great-grandmother has been named Ipswich Town FC’s “Community Champion”.

Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock is anticipating another eventful evening when he brings his side to Portman Road tomorrow night.

Ipswich Town welcome a Cardiff side sitting second in the Championship to Portman Road.

Winning games of football is the best way to heal a damaged relationship between touchline and terrace, former Blues boss George Burley insists.
