VVV-Venlo coach Maurice Steijn revealed yesterday that he is on a list of potential new coaches for Ipswich Town.

Steijn, who has just guided Venlo to the second division championship in the Netherlands, his team set to take on the likes of Ajax, Feyenoord and PSV Eindhoven next season, told Dutch TV channel Omroep West: “I’m on that list.

“A couple of English journalists called me and confirmed that. But as long as I don’t hear anything, it is not an option. It’s most likely therefore that I will still be working at VVV next year.”

Steijn, a former midfielder with Den Haag and NAC Breda, has also had a spell managing the former.
