Ipswich Town manager Paul Lambert has revealed that the club will not be selling any squad members until new ones are brought in during the January transfer window.
The Tractor Boys are struggling badly in the Championship this season, sat rock bottom of the table with 21 matches played and a whole seven points behind second-bottom Bolton Wanderers.
“Nobody will be leaving until we get people in,” Lambert revealed as his side prepare to face Wigan Athletic this weekend.
“When we get people in I might look at it but not before.
“The Club has always got to come first.”
Lambert was brought to Portman Road after summer appointment Paul Hurst was sacked after 14 games and just one victory, a 3-2 triumph against Swansea City.
Ipswich suffered their fourth straight defeat last weekend when they were comfortably beaten 2-0 by Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium.
That win at the Liberty Stadium remains the club’s only of the season with Lambert no doubt desperate to pick up three points when they host the Latics on Saturday.
This seems sensible.
There is not really anything wrong with the players that Paul Hurst brought in, in fact Gwion Edwards has probably been their player of the season, but there is certainly a need for more Championship experience.
It will be interesting to see who Lambert is able to get his hands on, however, because if they are cut further adrift by that point, then a move to Ipswich will not be the most appealing prospect.
