Ipswich Town striker in-demand as Peterborough United remain keen

Published

on

Ipswich look like they could face a battle to keep hold of Tyreece Simpson this summer, with Peterborough still chasing a deal to sign him as reported by the East Anglian Daily Times.

The 20-year-old spent the first half of last season on loan with Swindon and really impressed for the side in League Two. He managed a haul of nine goals and two assists in 25 league outings and was a solid option for the fourth tier outfit.

He was recalled to his parent club during the winter window though and had to spend the remainder of the campaign merely watching on from the sidelines rather than getting involved on the field.

Now though, it looks like Peterborough are prepared to give him a chance with them now that they have been relegated back down to League One – and will try and snap him up on a deal during the offseason.

Considering his age and how well he has fared in the EFL already, the Tractor Boys might not want to let him go too easily. He looks like he could have the potential to be a decent option for the side going forward.

However, the player might try and push through an exit to try and secure more action and if a Posh bid does go in, then it could lead to a sale happening this summer.

Peterborough certainly do seem keen to do business for the youngster – and Ipswich might ultimately be resigned to letting him go if a concrete offer does come in.

The Verdict

Where Ipswich lie on the getting rid of Tyreece Simpson stance is unclear. He could be a very good option for them in League One and boss Kieran McKenna might recognise that – and it might be why he spent the second half of the season back at Portman Road.

However, he doesn’t seem to be happy just sitting on the bench and the side are aware they can get some money for him according to this report. That means they might prefer to cash-in on a player who isn’t guaranteed a starting berth and then spend the funds improving the side elsewhere instead.

Peterborough clearly look like they are prepared to take him off their hands and a deal for the 20-year-old could be an excellent piece of business from the newly-relegated club. He is exactly the type of signing that any team should be making – he has experience, has proven goalscoring ability and potential to be sold on for much higher in the future.

If the Posh can get a deal done then, it would be a good move by them.
