Ipswich Town are said to be mulling a move for ex-Norwich striker Cameron Jerome ahead of the deadline for loan deals this Friday.

Jerome, 32, left Norwich for Derby in a £1.5m move in January, but has yet to play under new Rams’ boss Frank Lampard, who has a fleet of expensive attacking options at his disposal.

The ex-Canary hitman scored six goals in 20 games (10 starts) after arriving at Pride Park last season.

According to the Daily Mirror, Town are one of a number of clubs – including QPR, Reading, Hull, Blackburn and Reading – in the market for Jerome.

MORE: Town sign winger Graham

Town yesterday signed Wolves winger Jordan Graham on a season-long loan and are working on finally bringing Blackpool centre-back Curtis Tilt – long a target of boss Paul Hurst – to Portman Road after a long-running saga.

Signing a striker too would also make sense, but with Jerome reportedly on big wages at the Rams, that could well be an issue for Town – and makes the move appear unlikely.
