Ipswich are keen to hold out for a fee in the region of £8million, which could hint that his short-term future remains at Portman Road ahead of the new season.

Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
I’d say if he were in the championship he’d start at £5m… that was my point really… value is really league dependent. Vs West Ham on Tuesday he was the standout player in both sides. He was up against Wilshere, Anderson and Soucek… he’s strong and fearless…

Valuations highlighting the difference now we’re a League One club. Getting back up this year is vital otherwise we will sell at these levels.

No amount we receive for him will be in the slightest bit beneficial, whether it be 2 or 10 mil. He's vital for any kind of promotion hope, which is the main goal of the club. If we don't go back up this season the clubs screwed.

I think its inevitable Flynn will leave sooner or later could explain why Lambert has yet to trim the over subscribed Midfield

Well done rejecting the offer, far too low for Downes. 👍
