He’s the subject of intense transfer speculation – and Martyn Waghorn showed why yesterday with an outrageous bit of skill at the Ipswich Town Open Day.

The star striker, who netted 16 goals and 11 assists last season, wowed the fans watching at Portman Road during a training drill, taking shots at Polish international stopper Bartosz Bialkowski.

Waghorn first crashed a curling effort against the bar, before taking the rebound first-time and smashing a volley into the top corner.

It was a sublime bit of skill from the silky forward, which got Town fans talking on social media.

Waghorn, of course, continues to be linked with a move away from Portman Road, with Sheffield United seeing a bid turned down earlier this summer and both Derby and Middlesbrough still interested.

When asked yesterday about the Waghorn saga, boss Paul Hurst said he wanted the situation resolved as soon as possible.

He explained: “I think the ideal scenario is that, but we have spoken about a valuation and just because I would like it resolved doesn’t mean we go and say ‘oh, we’ll take less money then’.
