Ipswich Town midfielder Teddy Bishop has been linked with a move to his hometown club Cambridge United, per TWTD.
Bishop has been at the Tractor Boys since he was seven years old, progressing through their academy before signing his first professional contract in 2014 after completing his scholarship.
He was immediately thrown into the first-team picture the following season, playing 33 times in the Championship in a campaign where Ipswich reached the play-offs, with 18-year-old Bishop notching seven assists.
The next few years would unfortunately see the midfielder struggle with injuries, only playing 54 league games over the next five seasons but the 2020/21 campaign was more of a positive one on a personal note for Bishop as he made 38 outings in all competitions.
With Cambridge returning to League One though for the first time since 2002, they are looking to bolster their options and Bishop is being lined-up as a potential midfield target.
What club do these 21 former Ipswich Town players ply their trade at now?
Despite the club triggering a one-year extension in his contract, Bishop is one of many in the Ipswich squad that have been told to find new clubs by manager Paul Cook, according to the East Anglian Daily Times.
So he could relish the opportunity of returning home to play for the U’s if he is not wanted at Portman Road, which looks like it’s exactly the case.
Despite being a talented teen back when he first emerged onto the scene, injuries have hampered Bishop’s career and stopped him from making it to the top flight.
From a personal point of view, this past season has been Bishop’s most progressive since his debut campaign due to the amount of game-time he received, proving that he’s over the nagging injury issues that have been plaguing him.
The time could be right though to move on from his association with Ipswich – especially as it seems like Cook wants to chop the majority of the current squad – and considering he will only be 25 at the start of next season, Bishop still has time to make a real impact at League One level and potentially in the Championship.
