Darren Ambrose is hoping to prove his worth to win himself another deal at boyhood club Ipswich Town.

The midfielder relocated to Thurston last summer ahead of a third spell at the Sky Bet Championship Club, but was one of several players not offered a new contract at the end of the season.

Ambrose, who has also played for Newcastle United, Charlton Athletic, Crystal Palace and Birmingham City, joined in pre-season training at Playford Road this week in a bid to impress manager Mick McCarthy.

The 31-year-old made eight appearances in total for the Blues after joining in September, scoring in an FA Cup tie at Premier League Southampton.

Capped 10 times by England Under-21s, he initially left Portman Road in March, 2013, joining Premier League Newcastle for £1 million before a £1.5 million switch to Charlton at the end of the 2004-05 season.

In total he has made 55 appearances for Ipswich, scoring 12 goals.
