Birmingham City have joined Fulham and Wigan Athletic in the race to sign out-of-contract Ipswich Town winger Paul Anderson, according to the Sudbury Mercury.
The 26-year-old’s contract at Portman Road runs out this summer, and as of yet has not been offered a new deal.
However, Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy has not ruled out extending Anderson’s stay at the club, sparking a fans’ petition to try and ensure the popular midfielder is still playing for the Tractor Boys next term.
Should the former Nottingham Forest winger leave Ipswich, there will be no shortage of suitors, with Birmingham City and Fulham amongst those reportedly interested.
Wigan Athletic could be ready to guarantee Anderson first-team football after their relegation to League One, but it is unlikely that the former Liverpool youngster would be prepared to also make that drop, after making 38 appearances for Mick McCarthy’s side last term.
Birmingham boss Gary Rowett would see Anderson as a perfect addition to his squad as he looks to challenge for a play-off place next season, whilst Fulham will be looking to improve on their 17th place finish and are interested in the winger as they look to strengthen their squad.
