Ipswich Town goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski is reportedly in contract talks with Ipswich Town with a move to Birmingham City looking less likely, according to Lyall Thomas of Sky Sports.

Birmingham registered an interest in the 31-year-old, according to Sky Sports, but with the club still under a transfer embargo, which prevents them from buying players from other Football League clubs, the move is looking less and less likely.
Bialkowski moved to Portman Road from Notts County four years ago and has since gone on to make over 150 Championship appearances for the Tractor Boys.
Garry Monk is keen to bring a new goalkeeper to St. Andrews with David Stockdale and Tomasz Kuszczak both looking likely to leave the club.
It would leave the Blues without a first-team option between the sticks so is an area they are understandably keen to strengthen.
So far they have only made one signing this summer in the form of left-back Kristian Pedersen the only player to arrive so far.
Ipswich, on the other hand, will be determined not to lose another first team player having already sold centre-back Adam Webster to Bristol City.
I don’t think Ipsiwch fans have an awful lot to worry about here.
I can’t see Bialkowski being tempted enough by a move to Birmingham to leave and even if he does, at 31, he is replaceable.
Birmingham, however, need to get a move on with regards to signing a ‘keeper or they could be in real trouble come the start of the season.
