Ipswich launch unnamed striker bid

Published Add your comment

Ipswich boss Paul Jewell has launched another bid for an unnamed striker just days after landing Michael Chopra from Cardiff.

Jewell does not want or need to sell starlet Connor Wickham but remains keen to further bolster his striking options, although former target Billy Sharp - for whom a bid was rejected by Doncaster last month - is no longer on Town's radar.

Jewell told the East Anglian Daily Times: "We've got some good strikers at the club. We've got Connor, we've got Jason Scotland, we've got Tamas Priskin and now we've got Michael Chopra but I still want another one. We have made a bid for another striker and there are two or three other things going on at the moment which, luckily, we've been able to keep quiet to a certain extent."

One of those in Jewell's thoughts is Preston centre-back Sean St Ledger although the Town boss, a long-time admirer of the Republic of Ireland international, has only made an enquiry and not a firm bid.


"I spoke to Maurice Lindsey (North End chairman) on Sunday just to make an enquiry about Sean but it's a long, long way from happening," Jewell added.

"He's just one of many players we are looking at and I can't say much more than that."
