Ipswich Town are looking to keep Omari Hutchinson for their first season back in the Premier League following his successful loan spell from Chelsea.

The 20-year-old joined Ipswich last summer and after a slow start he finished the campaign as one of the team’s key players under Kieran McKenna.

After helping Ipswich win automatic promotion back to the Premier League earlier this month, Hutchinson indicated that he would be open to staying with the club for another campaign.

And Ipswich’s chief executive, Mark Ashton, says he would ‘love’ to have the midfielder back in McKenna’s squad for next season.

‘Listen, you never know. It’s really early at the moment,’ Ashton said in an interview with East Anglian Daily Times.

‘What Kieran’s done with Omari from day one, how he’s developed him, is incredible. He’s gone from a bit-part player, to a mainstay in the team, to someone who has really impacted the team.

‘We’d love to have him here for sure, but that would mean discussions with Chelsea, with his agent, with him, with his family etc. All of that will take a little bit of time.

‘You get promoted and everyone talks emotionally, ‘I want to be here!’, but you’ve got to let the dust settle and then calmly speak to the right people.

‘It’s one we’ll step through and see where we go.

‘But he’s been an exceptional talent for us, he’s come to the forefront incredibly well in recent weeks. We’ll sit down with Kieran and we’ll have a good look at what we’re going to do.’
