JON Walters did not take long to agree an extension to his Ipswich Town contract that was first mooted only last Friday.

The former Chester man, 25, previously signed an extension to 2011 in January. He has now extended this to the summer of 2012 after completing the new deal last night.

Blues manager Jim Magilton said: “We're delighted that Jon has agreed to new contract. There was a lot of speculation about his future during the summer but we made it clear that we wanted him at this football club.

“There were Premier League clubs showing an interest in him but we have always seen him as an important part of what we are building here.”

Walters needed stitches in a head wound last night after colliding with Nick Bailey when they Charlton played cleared a Gareth McAuley header off the line.
