Many Ipswich Town fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news that midfielder Liam Gibbs could soon be joining their arch rivals Norwich City this summer.
The 18-year-old recently departed Portman Road as a free agent and is now seemingly closing in on a move to the Premier League with the Canaries.
Ipswich are set to receive a compensation fee within the region of £500,000 once the deal goes through for the teenager in recognition for the role that they played in his development.
Gibbs is set for a move to Carrow Road after making just four first team appearances for the Tractor Boys prior to his departure at the back end of June.
Naturally the news of Gibbs potentially moving to Norwich didn’t take long to reach the Ipswich faithful, with many taking to social media earlier today to air their views on the matter in hand.

Here, we take a look at some of the best reactions to the news from the supporters on Twitter.
Not bothered about this if he was that good he would’ve walked into the team we’ve had the last few seasons but he didn’t. I’m not going to lose sleep over it.

At least we get something for him. The club doesn’t seem to have tried too hard to keep him so time will tell if this was a mistake or not!

£500,000 would be great for the signings we need now to get out of league 1. Gibbs good player but wouldn’t have really helped us this year. Butter sweet this #itfc

If we get 500k compensation we’ll be laughing. That covers the cost of Harper and I know who I’d rather have in midfield at the moment. Not sure if we can arrange a sell on clause but I’m sure Ashton will be all over that

Shame to lose him but again if don't wanna be here then best get the best deal and 500k is good

Shame that it’ll be Norwich he’s going to, but they know how to develop their kids brilliantly. If the compensation (500,000) is true, that’ll be huge for us this season plus the money coming in for Downes 🤞🤞 #itfc https://t.co/sE2q6wuoic
