IPSWICH boss Mick McCarthy ex­pects to se­cure a deal to keep Danny Hig­gin­botham at the club un­til the end of the sea­son af­ter an im­pres­sive start to life at Port­man Road.

Former Manch­ester United young­ster Hig­gin­botham has been on loan from Stoke since Septem­ber and while he has spent a spell out of favour re­cently, McCarthy wants him to stay longer.

“I spoke to (Stoke man­ager) Tony Pulis. He’s happy to do that and Danny is as well. So we just need to tie that up,” said McCarthy.

“He wants to fight for his place and I imag­ine we’ll keep him for the rest of the sea­son.”
