Ipswich Town managing director Ian Milne has revealed that the club are currently involved in discussions with a view to adding two more players to the squad before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.
It’s understood that the Blues have had a bid in the region of £500k turned down by Scottish club Hearts for 19-year-old right-back/centre-back Jordan McGhee. Town owner Marcus Evans remains in negotiations but, with the price having been continually raised after the bidding started at around £100k, he is ready to move on to another target should the two clubs not be able to agree a fee.
The EADT and Ipswich Star understands that the other target is a squad goalkeeper with young third-choice custodian Michael Crowe set to be sent out on loan.
“There maybe a few other things going on at the moment,” said Milne, speaking on BBC Suffolk yesterday. “We’ll get the right players in to be part of the team. Mick (McCarthy) has said that you don’t want too big a squad because that starts friction and all the rest of it.
“There are some options we’ve got and there’ll be some options coming in, I’m sure.”
