Green has no Ipswich offer

Paul Green is in contact with Ipswich Town, but has no offer as yet to return to the club for the 2014/15 campaign.

The 31-year-old midfielder is available as a free agent following his release by Leeds United.

He saw out the 2013/14 season on loan at Portman Road and had hoped to have done enough to earn a permanent stay.

Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy is yet to make an approach, though, and Green admits he is keeping all of his options open as a result.

The Republic of Ireland international said in the Green Un: "My agent has spoken to Mick but no offer has been made yet.

"I really enjoyed it at Ipswich and I could see myself moving down there, but you never know what is going to happen.

"I have spoken to a couple of other teams but nothing is certain yet. It's a case of wait and see, but Ipswich would definitely be up there at the top of my list.

"Mick was brilliant and was a big attraction in me going down there, he knows how to get teams out of this division.

"He also creates a great team spirit and I didn't want the season to end."

While prepared to bide his time, Green admits he is hoping to have something in place by the time teams return for pre-season training at the start of July.

He added: "You don't want to be missing much of pre-season as it's such an important part of the build-up to the season.

"I remember missing one before and you are playing catch-up all the time.

"It would be nice to get something sorted in the next couple of weeks."
