Ipswich Town transfer round-up: medical could impact signing, bid rejected, decision made over 20-year-old

Published

on

With the clock ticking down on the January transfer window, time is running out for club to get their business done, and Ipswich Town are no different.

The Tractor Boys completed their first signing of the window on Tuesday, with winger Luke Thomas joining on loan from Barnsley until the end of the season.

It seems however, as though they may not be done there, with plenty more speculation continuing to surround Paul Lambert’s side as they look to get more business completed while they can.

Here, we’ve taken a look at the main transfer stories emerging from Portman Road over the past few days.

Club wait for medical results on potential signing

It seems Thomas might not be the only Championship player to join Ipswich this month, with Preston’s Josh Harrop seemingly close to moving to Portman Road, although a deal is still not guaranteed.

Ipswich are said to have agreed a deal with Preston for Harrop, which would see the attacking midfielder join on loan until the end of the season.

However, The East Anglian Daily Times are reporting that the Tractor Boys will wait for the results of a medical before completing a deal, amid concerns over a knee problem that has contributed to Harrop’s limited game time at Deepdale this season.

Can you identify these 17 former Ipswich players from these three clues?

Canadian international, defender, made over 150 appearances for Ipswich?

Donacien bid rejected

One player whose future at Ipswich is seemingly still to be decided, is Janoi Donacien.

The versatile defender is seemingly attracting attention from elsewhere in League One at the minute, despite failing to make a league appearance for Lambert’s side this season, although his departure is not certain, it would appear.

According to reports, Ipswich have rejected a bid from League One rivals Plymouth for the permanent signing of Donacien, with the Tractor Boys only said to be willing to let the 27-year-old leave on loan this month.

Decision made on goalkeeper

It seems as though Ipswich have made a decision on one player’s future however, with Adam Pryzbek returning to the club following a loan spell with Concord Rangers.

The goalkeeper joined the National League South club on loan last month, and made five appearances in all competitions, although they have now confirmed that Ipswich have recalled the 20-year-old.

What happens next for Przybek remains to be seen, although his return could prompt a reshuffle in the squad, as they look to accommodate those prospective new arrivals amid issues such as salary cap regulations.
