Ipswich Town midfielder Teddy Bishop is said to be a transfer target for MK Dons this summer, as per a recent report by TWTD.
The 24-year-old is one of several players under contract at Portman Road that have been told they can leave this summer if an offer comes in for their services.
Bishop did however sign a new one year contract extension after the club triggered a clause in his contract, which suggests that he could still have a role to play for the Tractor Boys.
This isn’t the first time that the midfielder has been linked with a move away from Ipswich this summer, with Cambridge United also being touted as a possible destination for the player that rose through the ranks of Town’s academy system.
Quiz: Did each of these 20 midfielders ever score a goal for Ipswich Town?
The Cambridge born player made 38 appearances last season and notched up a respectable four goals and two assists as Ipswich fell short in the race for a Sky Bet League One play-off place under Paul Cook.
I can’t say I am too shocked by this development, as it has been well documented that Cook wants to overhaul a vast majority of the squad that he inherited from Paul Lambert.
Bishop was a regular feature last term and maybe the fact that he has been told he can leave indicates that the club were not impressed with his performances in the midfield.
However after seeing his one year option triggered, he could well get a stay of execution at Portman Road, with Cook maybe thinking of giving him a chance.
Milton Keynes will certainly be in the market for new players to improve their current squad, whilst the Cambridge rumours will probably never go away with Bishop being from there, so I don’t think we have heard the last of this particular rumour.
