Reading midfielder Jay Tabb has stated that he would be happy to turn his loan move into a permanent deal following a short stay at Championship side Ipswich Town.  

Tabb has joined up with former Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Mick McCarthy at Portman Road and has enjoyed a good spell, scoring his first goal last weekend with a goal against Sheffield Wednesday. The 29-year-old comes to the end of his contract in the summer, and this will be his fourth year at Reading.

Tabb has stated that he would be happy to stay at Ipswich and help McCarthy's team mount a promotion push next season. Tabb told BBC Radio Suffolk: "I've had four and a half good years at Reading, but sometimes a change is a good thing."

"I'm 29 now, I've got a few good years left in me and when I look at what I want to achieve in the rest of my career- I want to get back into the Premier League."

Tabb has been impressed by the work of Mick McCarthy, and the defender has said he would be more than happy to stay at Ipswich, even if Reading were interested in a contract renewal.

Tabb continued by saying: "When you look at the Ipswich manager's track record, this is a good place to get back into the Premier League.

"I'll assess the situation in the summer.

This is a great club and I'd like to think I can end up here. If I'm an Ipswich player next season I'll be very happy."

As well as the likely option to a move to Ipswich in the summer, Tabb has not ruled out the option to look at other offers in the summer to stating: "I would love to stay and earn a permanent deal but as a professional, you have to keep your options open as well."
