ALTHOUGH Thomas Sorensen remains a No. 1 choice for Ipswich Town Jim Magilton has been looking at alternatives with Northampton's Mark Bunn the latest to be linked.

ALTHOUGH Thomas Sorensen remains a No. 1 choice for Ipswich Town Jim Magilton has been looking at alternatives with Northampton's Mark Bunn the latest to be linked.

Cobblers chairman David Cardoza confirmed Ipswich have not many any offers for the Canadian, who is also a target of newly-promoted Nottingham Forest.

Northampton have put a price of around £1m on 23-year-old Bunn's head, who was reported to have been watched by Magilton.

Magilton saw Northampton play Tranmere but Bunn was out of action with a hip injury. It is just as likely that Magilton was watching defender Jason Crowe, who Town had asked about last summer.

Magilton tried to sign Sorensen in January but the Denmark keeper did not want to drop down a division. He is now a free agent after being released by Aston Villa and may reconsider a move to Portman Road if no Premier League clubs come in for him.

The Town boss has also made it clear he would forgive and forget to land Richard Wright, who he tried to sign last summer. Wright chose to join West Ham for more money but spent all his time on the bench before going out on loan to Southamoptn.

With Town able to offer better wages Wright may be tempted to return to Portman Road knowing he will be first choice.

The Blues' reluctance to activate the option which was part of Stephen Bywater's loan deal from Derby shows there is uncertainty in Magilton's mind about the keeper, who has also been told he has no future at Pride Park.

Reports in Scotland suggest Shane Supple is wanted by Falkirk but it is unlikely the Irishman will want to spend his time on the bench at Fir Park next season.

The departure of Andy Rhodes as goalkeeper coach may be a factor as will what Nick Colgan decides to do.

Hotly-tipped for the job is Malcolm Webster who could help in Wright's return and he will also be well aware of Bunn's ability as he has been working closely with former Town coach John Gorman at Southampton who handed the keeper his Northampton debut.
