Highly sought after Accrington Stanley attacker Kayden Jackson admits he would find it hard to turn down an offer from a Championship club, reports the Lancashire Telegraph.
Ipswich Town remain the front-runners for his signature and have reportedly launched a £2million bid for the 24-year-old, according to the Sun’s live blog (July 30).
“If the chance arises then I would love to have an opportunity,” Jackson told the Lancashire Telegraph.
“But, whatever happens, I want to make sure I am enjoying my football next season and want to try and do well.”
Even though he only has a year left on his current contract, Stanley are not willing to let their star man go for any less than they think he is worth.
Jackson was directly involved in 30 League Two goals last season, scoring 15 and assisting 15, forming a deadly partnership with Billy Kee.
He would become Paul Hurt’s fifth signing of the summer, following Gwion Edwards, Ellis Harrison, Trevoh Chalobah and Jordan Roberts into Portman Road.
£2million should be more than enough to secure Jackson’s signature and if Stanley turn it down it would be incredibly foolish.
A club of Accrington’s size cannot risk losing out on money like that, especially with the possibility of the striker leaving on a free at the end of the season.
