LIVERPOOL midfielder Danny Guthrie is being tracked by Ipswich Town and could be brought in when Mark Noble returns to West Ham next week.
Blues boss Jim Magilton has already seen the 19-year-old in action when he made his Reds debut as a substitute in the League Cup at Anfield, against Reading last month. He was on the subs bench as Liverpool took on Birmingham last night.
Although he hails from Telford, Guthrie was originally on Manchester United's books but was released at 13. The fast paced, attacking-midfielder is a former England youth international. He progressed through Liverpool's Academy and is a regular in their reserves.
Guthrie was recommended to Magilton by Liverpool's reserve team coach Gary Ablett and after seeing him in action, the Town's boss's interest has grown and he has made further inquiries about the youngster.
Much will depend on whether Owen Garvan or Gavin Williams make a speedy return to fitness with Noble returning to Upton Park after the Sheffield Wednesday match.

Tommy Miller is also still in the equation and the time could be ripe for him finally to make his long-awaited return from Sunderland.
The EADT first reported Miller could be on his way back and when Jim Magilton took over from Joe Royle he confirmed he would be keen to re-sign the midfielder. He had to wait until Miller's wife had delivered twins (one boy, one girl) but said that Roy Keane was happy to allow him to leave.
