Ipswich Town will need to stump up around £2m if they wish to sign Accrington Stanley striker Kayden Jackson.
That is, according to journalist Alan Nixon, who reports via his official Twitter account today that the Tractor Boys will need to delve into the coffers if they want to complete a move for the former Barnsley striker.
24-year-old Jackson has seen his stock rise considerably in the last 12 months, as he smashed in 16 goals last season to help guide Accrington to the title and a well earned promotion into League One.
However, Jackson is now looking to move away from the club, and has even handed in a transfer request as he looks to force a move into the Championship and prove himself at the highest level he can.
Ipswich could well be willing to pay the money, if a deal for Martyn Waghorn can be concluded in the coming days, with the striker expected to complete a move to Middlesbrough if personal terms can be agreed between the player and Tony Pulis’ side.
Any sum paid for Jackson will once again see Barnsley receive a nice sum in terms of a sell on fee, following their success in selling the likes of John Stones and Alfie Mawson in recent seasons.
