Ipswich midfielder Andre Dozzell looks to secure a first- team spot with Ipswich after signing a new contract at Portman Road.

Dozzell turned 18 on Tuesday and, having signed his first professional deal last year, has extended it until 2020.

The England Under-17 international has made 11 appearances for the Sky Bet Championship side.

“I’ve been in and around the first team this season and that’s my goal, to play regularly for the team,” he told the club’s official website.

“That is the only thing that will keep me improving, and that is what I’m focused on.

“It was hard when I wasn’t involved over the first half of the season, but I can see why I wasn’t.

“The Championship is a tough league and it’s difficult to throw someone of my age into those types of games, but I’ve been working hard in the gym to become bigger and stronger.”
