Birmingham City striker Clayton Donaldson is once again attracting interest this transfer window with the latest club keen on his services being Ipswich Town, reports TWTD.com.
Donaldson had a superb campaign last year for the Blues scoring 16 goals in the league. He led the line well and it is little surprise that interest is high in the player.
The 31-year-old joined City in 2014 from Brentford, where he had made a name for himself scoring goals and contributing to the promotion for the Bees.
Ipswich are the second club to show an interest in Donaldson after Reading had earlier in the window, and although manager Gary Rowlett hadn’t made him available for transfer he did admit that he could move on saying “every player has their price tag”. That price tag could be set at over £1 million with Reading already having a deal worth over £1 million with add-ons rejected.
It is understood that Ipswich will make an offer of around £1.2 million for the Blues frontman, however, the deal could depend on the departure of last season’s Championship top scorer Daryl Murphy, who is a target for Middlesbrough and Sheffield Wednesday or the departure of David McGoldrick, who has been attracting interest from Derby County.
It is not clear whether Donaldson is ear marked as a replacement for one of those two strikers or whether he would be an addition to the already lethal strike force.
Ipswich fans….. What do you make of the link with Donaldson? Do you think he could potentially replace Murphy or McGoldrick? City fans….. Do you think £1.2 million is a fair price for Donaldson? leave your comments below.
