Transfer interest in Ipswich Town striker Kayden Jackson has cooled, we understand.
The 26-year-old has been eyed by clubs in the Championship in recent weeks as contract talks with the Blues remain unresolved, with the forward rejecting the club’s latest offer following months of discussion.
Coventry City were the leading contender for the former Accrington man’s signature but have not made a bid, with the Sky Blues’ interest understood to have dropped off.
Stoke and Birmingham were linked earlier this week but, again, there has been no bid from either side as the market cools.
Jackson was one of the Blues’ top performers last season as he led the Ipswich scoring charts alongside James Norwood on 11 goals, while also adding an impressive seven assists.

It’s understood the club remain keen to keep hold of Jackson this summer despite both the contract impasse and interest from elsewhere, with manager Paul Lambert seeing him as a key part of his plans.
As things stand Jackson will be out of contract next summer but the Blues do have their usual option to extend his deal by 12 months.
