The industrious midfielder that Mick McCarthy must add to his Ipswich squad in the summer



Former European Champions seem to be in abundance in the bottom half of the Sky Bet Championship, and Ipswich Town are one such club who once tasted success on the continent, but now find themselves in the lower levels of the second tier.

The Tractor Boys have had a distinctly average campaign, and finished the season at the wrong end of the table.

FA Cup defeat at the hands of non-league Lincoln added further disappointment around Portman Road, and a final day drubbing at relegation threatened Nottingham Forest was an accurate summary of the club’s campaign.

Manager Mick McCarthy will see big changes to his squad this summer, with talismanic loan star, Tom Lawrence, set to depart the club this summer when his loan deal expires.

The former Ireland manager has much to do, and on a tight budget will need to cleverly navigate the summer window if he is to build a squad capable of challenging in the top half.

Free agency will be an avenue to explore, and a former Norwich City youngster may provide an excellent addition to the Suffolk side.

Tom Adeyemi spent time on loan at Rotherham this season from Cardiff City, and his performances were one of few positives in the Millers doomed campaign.

The central midfielder acts as an anchor in the midfield, and his hard working mentality will certainly appeal to McCarthy’s managerial style.

Adeyemi has a bounty of experience, having also played on loan at Brentford, and would add depth and quality to the Portman Road squad.

Whether the player would consider a move to his boyhood club’s rivals remains to be seen, but an offer of Championship football as a free agent would be hard to ignore.

McCarthy should swoop for the player before other clubs declare solid interest, and begin his summer transfer dealings in an extremely positive manner.
