Ipswich Town midfielder Jay Tabb has said he intends to return to the Premier League after his first experience with Reading last season.
The 29-year-old made 12 top-flight appearances last term, before joining Ipswich on loan, a move which
becomes permanent on 1 July.
"I've still got aspirations of playing in the Premier League again," he told BBC Radio Suffolk.
Jay Tabb's career
- Brentford (2000-2006): 156 games, 24 goals
- Coventry (2006-2009): 104 games, 12 goals
- Reading (2009-present): 105 games, no goals
- Ipswich (on loan): 9 games, 1 goal
"And I plan on doing it with Ipswich," the former Coventry man added.
"It's the place to be and there are a lot of good players at Ipswich who deserve to be there.
"As a squad we can be confident that if we do what the gaffer tells us we'll have a good chance."
Town boss Mick McCarthy has handed Tabb a two-year contract after the wideman played nine times and scored once for the Portman Road side at the end of last season.
"I want to improve again as a player and I think with Mick, who is a great manager, I can do that," he said.
"I think Ipswich are going to be one of the 10 or 12 clubs that have a chance next year
"You've got to aim high. You can't go around blowing your own trumpet but you need to be ambitious as well.
"If we have a squad that stays fit for most of the season we will have a good chance of challenging at the top."
