MK Dons have agreed to sign Ipswich Town midfielder Teddy Bishop, according to Football Insider.
Ipswich completed the signing of Dons midfielder Scott Fraser on a three-year deal yesterday, after he scored 14 goals for Russell Martin’s side last season.
But the Tractor Boys look set to complete another agreement with Ipswich, with Teddy Bishop set to move in the opposite direction.
According to Football Insider, Bishop is poised to join MK Dons on a permanent basis, with his contract at Portman Road expiring at the end of next season.
How well do you know Ipswich Town’s celebrity supporters? – Can you score 20/20?
The 25-year-old made 36 appearances in League One last season, scoring four goals and chipping in with as many assists.
Bishop is been a target for the likes of Portsmouth and Lincoln City this summer, with MK moving in ahead of their rivals and completing a deal.
It has been a busy summer for the club, with Scott Twine, Aden Baldwin, Josh Martin, Ethan Robson and Max Watters arriving and putting pen to paper.
This could turn out to be a shrewd deal.
Losing Fraser is obviously a blow as he is undoubtedly an excellent player who contributed to so many games last term.
But Bishop is a tidy player who stood out in what was quite a drab season for Ipswich last term, and he will replace Fraser’s technical ability on the ball.
They’re signing a player who is available to sign for a cut-price given his contract situation in Suffolk, and it could be a shrewd replacement for Fraser.
