Queens Park Rangers and Peterborough are also said to have had offers accepted for the 24-year-old frontman, who scored 16 goals last season as Stanley won the League Two title.

But, as previously reported, he has made it clear Ipswich is his preferred destination due to his desire to work with new Blues boss Paul Hurst, who had the striker briefly during his time at Grimsby.

As well as a move for Jackson, the Blues are also pursuing a move for Rangers forward Josh Windass.

Reports in Scotland last night suggested Ipswich have lodged an offer in the region of £1.2m, which we can confirm to be correct.
