Ipswich and QPR among sides battling for 24-year-old after agreeing transfer fee



According to football journalist Pete O’Rourke, three clubs have agreed fees for Accrington Stanley star Kayden Jackson.

Ipswich Town, Queens Park Rangers and Peterborough United have all had bids accepted for Jackson and now it is up to the player to decide his next career move.

The 24-year-old scored 16 goals for Accrington last season, helping his side to the League Two title.

Formerly of Swindon Town, Tamworth, Wrexham, Barnsley and Grimsby Town, Jackson had only scored one goal in the Football League before last season.

Ipswich are hoping to bring Jackson to Portman Road to replace Martyn Waghorn, who appears Derby County bound.

QPR want more firepower up front after failing to score against Preston North End on the opening day.

Meanwhile, Posh are targeting Jackson as a replacement for Jack Marriott, who joined Derby after scoring 33 goals last season.

The Verdict

Jackson might prove to be a masterstroke but then again, he might not be ready for the step up to the Championship.

He has only had one prolific season in his career and surely staying at Accrington would be the best option for his long-term career.

A move to Peterborough would see more game time but he might be too tempted by the lure of Championship football.
