Ipswich Town launch new bid to try and secure agreement with 27-year-old



Ipswich Town are back in the running to sign Blackpool defender Curtis Tilt, a month after reportedly having had a bid rejected by Terry McPhillips’ side.

According to a tweet by Sun journalist Alan Nixon, Paul Hurst has shown further interest in signing the 27-year-old with a new and improved bid, which is likely to go through.

The tweet stated: “IPSWICH. In with new bid for Curtis Tilt at Blackpool. Should happen. Rival keen too but not moved fast enough. More online or in paper.”

The Tractor Boys are looking to secure the signing of the defender on loan with a view to a permanent deal in January, having missed the cut off date earlier this month.

Tilt made 45 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring one goal for the Tangerines, in a campaign that saw his side finish 12th in the League One table.

Tilt would join a whole host of other summer signings, with the likes of Trevoh Chalobah, Janoi Donecian, Kayden Jackson, Aristote Nsiala, Jon Nolan, Gwion Edwards, Ellis Harrison, Jordan Roberts, Tayo Edun who all arrived at Portman Road this summer.

The Verdict

Ipswich Town have made so many signings this summer, it comes as no surprise that they are back in pursuit of Curtis Tilt.

The Blackpool defender impressed through last campaign, and would certainly make a strong addition to Paul Hurst’s side.

Despite only having played one season in the English Football League to date, the 27-year-old deserves a chance to prove his worth in the Championship this season.
