IPSWICH Town have accepted an offer for one of their strikers who will be given permission to talk to the buying club this morning.

The Blues are also hoping that they will complete the signing of Colin Healy from Cork City today.

Manager Roy Keane did not want to name the player until he had spoken to him this morning and outlined the situation.

Keane said last night: “We have accepted an offer for one of our strikers and I will speak with him in the morning.

“We will give permission for the player to speak but that doesn't mean a deal is done or anything like that.

“We have to wheel and deal like everyone else and there may even be a few more offers to come.”

With another player possibly going out another is about to sign with the �60,000 deal for Healy almost done.

Keane said: “Colin has been in and and I have had a chat with him.

“We got permission off Cork to speak with him and he has had a medical.

“We are waiting for the results from that and he is discussing personal terms with Simon Clegg and I hope to confirm he is an Ipswich Town player in the morning.”

Liam Trotter scored twice to gave Town victory at Southend and Keane was happy enough with his team's efforts. He said: “I really enjoyed the game. In the first half we were threatening to do better than we were but the signs were decent.

“In the second half we finished with a couple of goals and it was a good workout.

“Alex Bruce got a kick on the shin and that injury was the only downside but hopefully it is not too serious.

“We might have scored one or two more goals but certainly the energy levels were higher than the weekend.”

Pablo Counago and Kevin Lisbie could be involved in a Town XI friendly at Clacton tonight.
