Daryl Murphy says he would be prepared to consider a permanent move to Ipswich Town, but is yet to hold talks with manager Paul Jewell.

The striker has scored twice in 18 appearances for Ipswich since joining the club on a season-long loan deal from SPL side Celtic.

The 28-year-old is enjoying his time at Portman Road and reports have suggested that Celtic would be prepared to sell in the summer.

However, Murphy is currently focused on Ipswich's battle to stay in the Championship and is happy to wait regarding a decision on his future.

"There is nothing going on at the minute," said Murphy in the East Anglian Daily Times. "The manager and me haven't talked about it.

"We are just concentrating on getting points on the board. I am here until the end of the season and we will see what happens after that.

"I would consider a move here. I have really enjoyed it but there are still a lot of games left to play and that decision is not down to me."
