Ipswich Town weighing up Collison deal
English Championship side Ipswich Town are closing in on a deal for former West Ham and Wales midfielder Jack Collison.
Mick McCarthy’s side have offered the injury-prone midfielder a short-term contract at Portman Road.
The 25-year old has trained with Ipswich, Birmingham City and Queens Park Rangers over the past couple of months and this appears to be the first significant offer the former Hammers youth product has been made since the close of the summer transfer window.
Town’s manager McCarthy was quoted by the Football League from the East Anglian Daily Times:
“I offered him exactly the same as Darren Ambrose, to January, and I’ve told him that offer still stands.
“Things all seem sweet now but we get to November and suddenly we’ve got a flu epidemic and we’ve people with injuries and suspensions so another body of that quality would be nice.”
The manager makes it sound like Collison would only be a bit-part player for the Tractor Boys despite a number of impressive seasons with West Ham in the Premier League where he made more than 100 appearances over seven years at Upton Park.
Ipswich Town are currently 10th in the Championship after seven games, on a back-to-back winning streak under the former Wolves and Republic of Ireland manager.
With the contract offered being for four months it would not be a big gamble from Ipswich considering the quality of player Collison is, despite his horrible history of injuries. If you like a gamble, you can always browse our variations of online slots at slots.redflushcasino.com.
