Gerrard's Happy At Goodison

by Mark Rowan @Everton

Paul Gerrard insists that he is happy with life at Everton, despite recent reports that have suggested otherwise.

The Evening Star Newspaper, based in Ipswich, has quoted the Everton stopper as saying he would relish a return to Portman Road following a successful spell on-loan.

Gerrard spent a month with the Tractor Boys at the end of last year last year and has constantly been linked with a return to Suffolk on a permanent basis.

But the 30-year-old, who could start the season in goal for the Blues following an injury to Richard Wright, has moved swiftly to dilute the latest report over his future.

"I haven't spoken to anyone about going back to Ipswich," Gerrard told evertonfc.com.

"Ipswich is a great club and I enjoyed my time there but at the moment all I am doing is concentrating on working hard for Everton.

"I have a year left on my contract and due to Richard picking up an injury over the summer I could possibly be handed a chance at the start of the season."
