Stead rejects Bristol move

OUT of favour Ipswich striker Jon Stead has reportedly rejected a move to Bristol City.

The Robins had tabled a �200,000 bid for the 27-year-old forward, who tumbled down the pecking order at Portman Road last year.

But the former Huddersfield, Blackburn, Sunderland and Sheffield United player has apparently refused a switch to the Championship club.

Stead spent a spell on loan at Coventry last season, where he scored twice in 10 league appearances.

Stead joined Ipswich for �600,000 from Sheffield United last summer but only made 22 appearances, scoring six times.
