The Blues are understood to be keeping a firm eye on the 23-year-old full-back, who can play on either side of the defence as well as in midfield.

Vincent-Young was not involved as Colchester beat Swindon 3-0 in the Carabao Cup last night, with the former Tottenham youngster having previously been a target for Luton and Charlton this summer.

"No, nothing there," Lambert said when asked if there has been any progress in the transfer market.

"He's somebody else's player and I don't like commenting on other people's players," Lambert said, when asked if the situation had changed.

"I didn't know Tom Elliott was back in training because I'm concentrating on the lads here.

"At the moment we go with what we've got."

Lambert is keen to add three players to his squad before the September 2 transfer deadline, with a full-back, a striker and a winger likely to be on the Ipswich boss's shopping list.
