Ipswich Town have made a move to sign Colchester United full-back Kane Vincent-Young as Paul Lambert looks to add to his squad before the transfer deadline.
Even though clubs in the top two tiers can no longer bring in players, unless they are free agents, the window remains open for the lower league sides.
And, the Tractor Boys are hoping to be active, with Football Insider revealing that they have approached the U’s over a potential deal for Vincent-Young, who is capable of playing in either full-back position.
They state that the highly-rated 23-year-old had been attracting interest from Championship pair Luton and Charlton, however nothing was agreed before the deadline.
Therefore, Ipswich have made a move to land the former Tottenham youngster and it’s believed that Lambert is confident a deal will go through before September 2.
Vincent-Young featured in 40 games for Colchester last season as they just missed out on the play-offs and he has played the opening two league fixtures of the current campaign, with the side still seeking their first win.
This would be a good signing for Ipswich and there’s no doubt that reinforcements are needed in the coming weeks as the squad is too short in key areas.
Full-back is a problem position and bringing in Vincent-Young would be an additional boost because he is also capable of filling in down either flank.
We know the financial situation at Portman Road, so the club need to do all they can to look for bargains and for players who can develop and improve under Lambert.
And, the Colchester man seems to fit the bill so this would be a shrewd move by Lambert if this is finalised before the deadline.
