Alan Judge says ‘so many things will come into play’ when he sits down to talk about his future with Ipswich Town over the coming weeks.

The 31-year-old midfielder has become a firm fans’ favourite since joining from Brentford for a nominal fee on January 14.

His short-term contract expires at the end of the campaign, though there is an ‘option’ in the deal to extend that by a further 12 months.

Judge recently said that option was ‘more in the club’s favour... a bit of both actually’, with Blues boss Paul Lambert agreeing that was a good description of the situation.

Speaking in an interview for tomorrow’s match day programme, Judge said: “Hopefully we will start talking over the next few weeks and we will see where it goes.
