Sunderland midfielder Tommy Miller insists he will not be returning to Ipswich, just yet.
Sunderland midfielder Tommy Miller insists he is happy on Wearside and will not be returning to Ipswich Town, just yet.
Town boss Joe Royle had been keen on bringing the 27-year-old back to Portman Road, but his sacking has scuppered talks of a deal.
And Miller, who left Suffolk for the North East last summer, has committed his immediate future to The Black Cats' push for promotion next season.
"Although we didn't have a good season and none of us were happy, I'm keen to stay," he told The Northern Echo.
"I have a year left on my contract and am not looking to jump ship.
"At the moment, things are up in the air with talks of a takeover and we have yet to see who the new manager will be, so things might change.
"I had some great times at Ipswich but, at the moment, my place is with Sunderland.
"You never know in football, though, one day I might be back at Ipswich for a third time," he said.
Miller has one year left on his Sunderland contract and could well line up against his former club in The Championship next season.
The Stadium of Light outfit will be looking to bounce straight back up to The Premiership, with their key men still intact.
