IPSWICH Town are playing down reports that Lauren Robert may be about to sign for them.

The French winger was spotted lunching with Blues chief scout Charlie Woods in an Italian restaurant on Saturday before going to watch the goalless draw with Burnley.

Woods said: “Lauren was staying in London over the weekend and called me so I invited him to the game.
