Ipswich Town eye transfer swoop for 30-year-old playmaker



Ipswich Town are contemplating an offer for Brentford midfielder Alan Judge in this month’s transfer window, according to reputable journalist, Alan Nixon. 

Judge has been restricted to just four starts this season, and has been used as a substitute on 16 occasions for Brentford, who are struggling.

The Irishman has found regular first-team football hard to come by since returning from a long-term injury problem, and having made just seven starts in total, it’s clear to see he isn’t first-choice at Griffin Park.

Brentford have slipped down the Championship table at an alarming rate since Dean Smith’s departure, and it’s surprising to see Judge not being given a run of games in the Bees side.

But a move to Ipswich could certainly be on the cards, and he could prove to be exactly what they are missing this season, with relegation to League One a serious possibility under Paul Lambert.

However, the Ipswich boss has been getting his transfer business done swiftly this month, with James Collins the latest arrival at Portman Road. 

It’s safe to say that he sees experience as something that is needed in this Ipswich squad, and Judge would bring a considerable amount of that if he was to sign for the relegation threatened Tractor Boys.

The Verdict

This would be an excellent addition to the Ipswich squad.

Judge has the creativity to make a real difference for the Tractor Boys as they battle to avoid relegation to League One this season.

He hasn’t been getting a look in since he returned from injury, and a move to Ipswich would certainly be the best move for all parties.
