Former Ipswich Town midfielder Andy Drury will sign for League One side Crawley Town on Monday, the EADT understands.
The 29-year-old – brought to Portman Road from non-league club Luton Town by Paul Jewell in January 2011 – was released by the Blues at the end of his contract last month after making 46 starts and 18 substitute appearances for the Suffolk club.
Drury scored four goals in 15 appearances for Crawley during a loan spell at the end of 2012 and the West Sussex club – who finished 10th in League One last season – are close to concluding a permanent deal.
Town travel to Crawley’s Broadfield Stadium for a pre-season game on July 10.
Meanwhile, the EADT understands that – contrary to reports – Fulham are not interested in signing transfer-listed Blues player Jay Emmanuel-Thomas.
