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.
