Higginbotham set to make Ipswich deal permanent

Higginbotham set to make Ipswich deal permanent

Danny Higginbotham is set to end his second spell at the Britannia Stadium.

The 33-year-old central defender looks set to make his loan move at Ipswich Town permanent in the January transfer window.

The former Stoke captain has spent the majority of this season on-loan at Portman Road in search of first team football, and Stoke manager Tony Pulis will not stand in the way of the former Manchester United trainee`s search for first team football.

Tony Pulis told the Staffordshire Sentinel: 'If both parties are happy and we can get a deal done, we will get the deal done.

'We will do everything in our power to help those who have been good for us, and Danny certainly has been good for us.'

Higginbotham has made 128 appearances for Stoke, scoring 14 goals in his two spells at the Potters. He has made 5 appearances this season on-loan at Ipswich.
