BREAKING NEWS: Elliott Hewitt has medical at Ipswich Town

WELSH Under-21 international Elliott Hewitt has undergone a medical at Ipswich Town as he closes in on his move to Portman Road.

The Macclesfield Town teenager, who turns 18 tomorrow, had a medical in Suffolk last night and is reported to be discussing terms with Blues boss Paul Jewell this morning.

While both clubs remain tight-lipped over the size of the fee, we understand it could be as little as �150,000, rising to �500,000 depending on numerous clauses being activated.

If so, this could be something of a snip for Ipswich with sources close to Macclesfield saying they expected to get somewhere in the region of �1 million in total for the 17-year-old,

Hewitt is expected to put pen to paper later today or tomorrow, depending on the negotiations, and would become Town’s first signing of the summer.
