WEST Brom midfielder Ronnie Wallwork has been linked with a move to Ipswich Town.
The 29-year-old former Manchester United player has been told by Baggies boss Tony Mowbray he can leave and sources in the West Midlands claim he is on his way to Portman Road, initially on loan but with a view to sign permanently in January.
Wallwork played a part in Bryan Robson's side that managed to escape relegation from the Premiership on the final day of the 2005 season but could not halt them going down at the end of last season.

After making 29 appearances for Manchester United, Wallwork joined the Baggies as a free agent but with around 100 games under his belt for Albion it appears he is not seen as part of Mowbray's plans.
Mowbray said: “I've had a chat with him and I know he needs to play football. Ronnie has been on the periphery and wasn't even in the team on Saturday when we had two midfielders out in the side. This will benefit the players and the club because it might well release funds. We won't stand in Ronnie's way.”

A holding midfielder, Wallwork would be brought in as cover for Sylvain Legwinski, although Town manager Jim Magilton has already indicated he has reached his limit on loan players.
The window closes on Thursday and Magilton has already turned down the chance to sign attacking midfielder Tommy Miller on loan from Sunderland.
