Ambrose on Toon speculation

Last updated : 08 February 2003 By Martyn Elliott

Ipswich town winger Darren Ambrose has been talking about press speculation regarding a move to St James’ Park.

"It is very flattering - people are saying good things and a man like Bobby Robson is interested," he told The Sun.

"People say Kieron (Dyer) and I are similar and that is a compliment but I want to be known as my own player.

"I am still young with a lot to prove and my future is at Ipswich. It is every player's ambition to play in the Premiership and I want to help the club get back there."

Numerous press stories recently have suggested that Ambrose is Sir Bobby’s number-one target in the summer and with Ipswich still in deep financial trouble after their relegation they may have no option but to sell.

Where the 18-year-old would fit into our team is another matter.
