Ipswich Town have enjoyed a strong start to the season and they are firmly in the mix for promotion at this very early stage.
Given what happened last season, fans of the Tractor Boys will not be getting carried away at all, along with boss Paul Lambert.
The Scotsman will continue to demand a lot from his players and whilst there is a reason for positivity over the past few months, the manager will also know the team are short in certain areas.
Lambert will hope January provides him with the time to make the necessary tweaks but the focus may not only be on incomings.
The financial situation means tough decisions may need to be made and here we look at TWO players who could be on the move in the New Year…
The midfielder has played his part this season but he is by no means the first name of the teamsheet at Portman Road.
Plus, with his contract expiring next summer, this is Ipswich’s last chance to get a fee for the player, if there is concrete interest from elsewhere.
As for Huws, he will surely want long-term security and if he no new deal is on the table, he may consider a switch in January.
20 quiz questions about Ipswich Town’s current squad that Tractor Boys fans should be getting correct
Ipswich did well to keep the striker after Bournemouth’s interest in the summer but it may not be as easy in January.
Whilst Jackson is another who is out of contract next summer, the club do have a 12-month option with him, which they will surely take up.
But, they may do that just to protect their asset. The player admitted he was ‘flattered’ by Championship interest, so a move up a level clearly appeals.
Jackson has only played three times this season, so Lambert’s men have done very well without him. Knowing that, the chance to cash in and use the funds to strengthen elsewhere, may suit all parties.
