Spanish international on Town’s radar

IPSWICH Town are watching West Brom centre-back Pablo Ibanez with view to a loan move, according to reports in the Midlands.

The 30-year-old Spaniard – who has 23 international caps – has played just one competitive game for the Baggies since Roy Hodgson took over at the Hawthorns in February.

Town scouts watched the former Atletico Madrid defender in a reserve game against Everton on Tuesday night.

West Brom have already signed two players from Ipswich this summer in the form of Gareth McAuley (Bosman, free) and keeper Marton Fulop (free).

Blues boss Paul Jewell’s pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Peterborough is at 12.30pm. Keep an eye on this website throughout the day for all the latest news.
