Ipswich Town set to snap up Premier League striker to bolster attack



Cardiff City striker Omar Bogle is set for a loan move to Ipswich Town, according to Sky Sports News.

Bogle is closing in on a season-long loan switch to Ipswich with his future at Cardiff looking bleak now they have reached the Premier League.

After moving to Cardiff from Wigan Athletic in a £1m deal last summer, Bogle managed just 12 appearances, scoring three times, before being loaned out to League One side Peterborough United.

He netted once in nine outings for Posh and now he is set for another move to the Championship.

The 25-year-old carved his career through the non-league system, playing for Hinckley United and Solihull Moors before earning promotion to the Football League with Grimsby Town.

During his time at Grimsby, the 6ft 3in striker netted an impressive 38 goals.

Ipswich have signed Ellis Harrison from Bristol Rovers and adding Bogle on loan is likely to force Martyn Waghorn out of the exit door.

The Verdict

This is a risky move because Bogle has never really done it at League One level.

But given his power, speed and ability to score goals at a lower level, perhaps Hurst is going to get the best out of him.

Bogle is likely to play second fiddle to Joe Garner and Ellis Harrison at first.
