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
"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."
