City warned over Walters
12 Aug 2008 - 10:23:05
Ipswich Town boss Jim Magilton has warned Stoke City to firm up their interest in Jon Walters or end their interest in the versatile forward.
The 24-year-old has been a major success for the Tractor Boys since his arrival from Chester City 18 months ago, with the Potters keeping tabs on the former Bolton Wanderers youngster.
However, a clearly agitated Magilton told the East Anglian Daily Times: "If Stoke are serious about Jon then they should make an offer. If not then they should go away.
"It annoys me if it is unsettling Jon. He is an Ipswich Town footballer on a three-year deal. We don't want to sell him, we want to keep him.
"If Stoke are showing serious intent in getting Jon, then they should do something about it. If not they should leave alone and let us get on with it.
"Jon is a player that other people covet, which is good for us because we have taken him from Chester and he has done fantastically well.
"We have no reason to sell our best players. We want to move on to the next level and we see no reason why Jon can't help us do that."
Walters has scored 17 goals in 57 appearances during his time at Portman Road.
