Alan Curbishley has issued a come and get me plea to Ipswich.

The former Charlton boss – who has been out of work since leaving West Ham in 2008 – is among the favourites to succeed Paul Jewell, who departed Portman Road earlier this week.

The 54-year-old told Sky Sports that he is surprised to be among the favourites for the job, but welcomed the news.

‘I am amazed when you look at the betting and I am up there with the frontrunners,’ Curbishley said.

‘Ipswich have been inundated with people who would like that job and I think they have a very important decision to make.

‘The last two or three years have been tough as they have been in decline a little bit.

‘They have to take their time, sift through the people that are available and come up with the right answer.

‘I am available, obviously, and if they want to talk to me, I would talk to them.’

Another one unlikely to make the real shortlist.
