MICK’S KEEN ON JONNY RE­TURN

The Football League Paper - - NEWS - By Luke Mur­ray

IP­SWICH boss Mick McCarthy is eye­ing an­other move for Jonny Wil­liams next sea­son – even if Pre­mier League clubs are also vy­ing for his ser­vices.

Wil­liams, 20, made 13 ap­pear­ances on loan from Crys­tal Palace as the Trac­tor Boys nar­rowly missed out on a play-off place.

And while McCarthy ex­pects plenty of com­pe­ti­tion for Wil­liams in the sum­mer, he has al­ready thrown Ip­swich’s hat into the ring.

“We all love him, we’d all love him back, but there will be oth­ers who would love to have him as well,” said McCarthy.

“That’s just the way it is. There might be Pre­mier League clubs that want to take him, Tony might want to have a look at him. Who knows?

“He’s done him­self no harm has he? He’s been fab­u­lous. We’d take him back at the drop of a hat. We’d love to have him back, of course, but that’s not my de­ci­sion.

“We’ll cer­tainly look at loan deals with Pre­mier League play­ers. Look at the qual­ity that Jonny has brought us.

“If we could get a cou­ple like that, not nec­es­sar­ily his po­si­tion, then I think that is go­ing to help us.”

LOAN STAR: Jonny Wil­liams
