THE search for new owners at Ipswich Town has been stepped up after a hoped-for takeover fell through.
Blues chairman David Sheepshanks last night admitted the club could eventually fall into foreign ownership - but only if the new people met a very strict criteria.
Sheepshanks revealed that there would now be no new cash investment this summer but the club was determined to carry on hunting for a substantial investment that would lead to a takeover.
