The 25-year-old appears to have played his last game for the Royals after linking up with Roy Keane's side last week and believes he has more chance of winning promotion this season at Portman Road.
He told the East Anglian Daily Times: "I think it would be disrespectful to Reading to say Ipswich are showing more ambition but I think their plan is more of a two or three-year one whereas Ipswich want to be at the top of the league this season.
"I only have a year left on my contract at Reading and they are cutting back so this move seemed like the perfect fit.
"I feel I'm not where I want to be and where I should be as a player. A lot of things have gone against me and I know it's now time to put it right.
"I'm a free agent at the end of the season and hopefully I will still be here with Ipswich if we can get up."
