Jim Magilton has backed his replacement as Ipswich Town captain, Jason De Vos.

Magilton will leave Town after sundays game at Plymouth.

‘I have a lot of respect for Jason and if he takes over the captaincy – which looks likely – I know he will go on and prove to be an excellent skipper for this football club,’ Jim told the Club website.

‘He has always been vocal and is an outstanding individual who has impressed me since he first arrived at the Club.
I know he will carry on the fine traditions of Ipswich Town and be an inspirational skipper’.

‘This is a magnificent football club and being made skipper here is a huge honour. I certainly saw it that way when Joe gave me the job’.

‘I’ve had many highs in my seven years at Ipswich Town but being made skipper was the highest. Knowing the manager has put his faith in you to be his spokesperson in the dressing-room was a wonderful feeling.’
