Ipswich Town have been linked with a £2million move for Rangers forward Josh Windass by reports this morning.

The 24-year-old scored 18 goals for the Ibrox club last season, having joined on a pre-contract agreement from Accrington Stanley in the summer of 2016.

Football Insider is reporting that the Blues have made a £2million bid as they look to replace striker Martyn Waghorn, who is set to complete his move from Ipswich to Derby County later today.

The report says new Rangers manager Steven Gerrard is keen to keep hold of the Englishman, son of former Hull, Middlesbrough and Bradford striker Dean Windass, as he looks to build a squad capable of challenging Glasgow rivals Celtic this season.

Windass started and won a penalty in Rangers’ opening-day draw with Aberdeen on Sunday, operating on the left of an attacking midfield three.

He signed a new contract with Rangers in February, with his deal running until 2021.

“Josh will play in different positions,” Gerrard said of Windass earlier this summer. “I’ve told the other players that, we don’t say ‘this is your position and you’re only going to play there’.

“We will play different systems and formations. If we feel Josh is the best man for a certain role in the team he’ll play.

“What I will say is he has applied himself very, very well since day one.”

The Blues are set to complete the double signing of Shrewsbury duo Toto Nsiala and Jon Nolan later today, while Kayden Jackson is understood to be travelling to Suffolk to begin the process of completing a move from Accrington.

QPR and Peterborough are also said to have had bids accepted, but Jackson is understood to be set on a move to Portman Road to work under Paul Hurst.

Cole Skuse agrees that his team mate and good friend Luke Chambers has probably taken on too much responsibility as Ipswich Town captain.

Shrewsbury Town chief executive Brian Caldwell has ruled out Paul Hurst returning to the club following his recent sacking by Ipswich Town.

More than 500 tickets have been donated for Ipswich Town’s home game against West Brom next Friday evening after one small act of kindness gained online momentum.

Toto Nsiala may currently find himself on the fringes of the Ipswich Town first-team but the central defender continues to make an impact off the field each and every week.

Andre Dozzell has revealed his frustration as his return to action stalled earlier in the season but the teenager is now hungry for minutes on the field after returning to the first-team picture.

In past columns I have talked about a divide between athletes that earn large amounts of money, and those that do not, and how there is a movement in Ipswich to bring this sporting diversity together.
