Ipswich Witches director of speedway Chris Louis has reacted with disappointment to the news that club asset Joe Jacobs has put in a transfer request.

The 19-year-old former Farlingaye School, Woodbridge, pupil handed in the request after Ipswich turned down Glasgow offers for a full transfer.

“Glasgow came to me about three weeks ago and asked if they could buy Joe,” Louis said.

“I said no, but they still came back with an offer.

“Again I told them he wasn’t for sale and maybe we could discuss it at the end of the season. But then on Friday I got the transfer request from Joe himself.”

“I understand where he’s coming from a bit. He’s settled down well at Glasgow, but his head’s been turned I think. It’s not my desire to lose him as he’s our asset and a local lad, I’m disappointed, but now he has put in a transfer request, we will talk to Glasgow.”
