A trio of clubs are said to be showing an interest in taking Jordan Roberts on loan for the rest of the season.

Bradford, Plymouth and MK Dons are showing interest, according to HITC, with the report suggesting all three have had loan offers accepted and it’s now down to Roberts to choose his destination.

The report also says Paul Lambert remains an admirer of Roberts but is open to the idea of allowing him to play games in the lower leagues between now and the end of the season.

Roberts, signed on a free transfer from Crawley in the summer by former Ipswich boss Paul Hurst, was brought in as a winger but found gametime limited during the early weeks of the season.

The 25-year-old was brought in from the cold following Lambert’s arrival and played as a central striker in the draws with Preston and Reading to great effect.

His impact dipped from there, though, and after playing in 10 games for Lambert he failed to make the matchday squad for Saturday’s victory over Rotherham.

The arrivals of Collin Quaner and Will Keane will further limit his time on the field and he looks set to be loaned out for the rest of the campaign.

Lambert has indicated a number of fringe players could now leave Ipswich on loan during the January window.
