Manchester City teenager Reece Wabara says he is open to prolonging his loan stint at Ipswich.

The defender is currently at Portman Road until January after arriving on a temporary deal last month.

But the 19-year-old is keen on making a name for himself with the Tractor Boys in order to enhance his chances of a future at Eastlands.

Wabara said: "I'm 19 now and my ambition is to play. If I'm playing and I'm going well then there's no reason why I can't extend the loan.

"I think the manager and coaches have great faith in me, hopefully I can pay back some of that faith.

"It's difficult to get into any good, winning side. I've just got to work hard, wait for my chance and show people what I can do."

On his chances of pushing for the City first team, the England Under-20 international added: "To be around those players - if you can fit in there you can fit in pretty much anywhere in the world, so you just learn what you can off them."
