Blues set to seal Volz deal
IPSWICH Town manager Jim Magilton's quest to strengthen his squad could bear fruit today with the loan signing of defender Moritz Volz from Premier League side Fulham.
IPSWICH Town manager Jim Magilton's quest to strengthen his squad could bear fruit today with the loan signing of defender Moritz Voltz from Premier League side Fulham.
The 25-year-old German looks as though he might join the Blues for a year, but will not be registered in time to feature in tonight's Carling Cup second round game against League One neighbours Colchester United at Portman Road (kick-off 7.45pm).
Magilton has until midnight next Monday to bring in some fresh faces before the transfer window closes, and he is still actively chasing a striker.
This is his main priority, but the arrival of Voltz, who began his English career with Arsenal, will give him more defensive options. Fulham originally accepted a £250,000 bid from Magilton, but the player was reluctant to complete a full signing being keen to keep his options open about playing in the top flight.
