Ipswich Town tie up Aaron Cresswell contract
Ipswich Town have handed an improved contract to defender Aaron Cresswell, who has signed until 2015 with the option of a further year.
The 21-year-old, who joined Ipswich on a three-year deal from Tranmere in July, has been ever present this term.
"Obviously I'm delighted to have been offered and signed a new contract," he told the club website.
Meanwhile, on-loan midfielder Keith Andrews has told BBC Radio Suffolk he does not want to return to Blackburn.
The 31-year-old, who has scored five goals in 12 appearances for Town, has expressed his desire to remain at Portman Road after his loan deal expires in January and said: "I can't envisage myself going back to Blackburn in any shape or form.
"I know I've got 18 months left on my contract there but I really don't want to be there. I've come here and had a new lease of life here. I'm sure something will get done in January."
Boss Paul Jewell spoke of his desire to hand Cresswell new terms last week, saying: "We want to reward him because he's proved he's a valuable member of the squad."
The left-back, who will miss his first game of the season against Millwall on Saturday as he serves a one-match suspension, added: "I've really enjoyed my time at the club so far and feel that I'm progressing as a player.
"It's been a massive step up, coming here from Tranmere, but fortunately it has gone well so far and hopefully there will be many happy times ahead."
