Mings set for Town extension

Last Updated: Tue, 02 Sep 2014 13:16

Ipswich are to offer Tyrone Mings a new contract after rejecting a deadline-day bid from Crystal Palace for the defender.

Town say they knocked back a "substantial" offer for the 21-year-old, who boss Mick McCarthy sees as a key player at Portman Road.

"We have discussed the possibility - rather the certainty, I should say - of giving Tyrone a new contract and that will be the case," McCarthy told the club's official website.

"That is the reward for getting in the team and doing well.

"Neither (owner) Marcus Evans nor I wanted him to go. We want him here for the long term.

"I want to keep my best players. I want to keep the young, exciting players and Ty is one of them."
