Ipswich Town are reportedly interested in signing winger Lloyd Isgrove following his release by Premier League club Southampton.
The 24-year-old was first linked to the Blues back in January and the Welshman – who has one senior cap – who has one senior cap – is said to still be on Mick McCarthy’s radar.
Primarily a winger, but also capable of playing up front, he could be a decent option if Town want to sign a permanent replacement for Tom Lawrence rather than look to another loan.
A product of the famed Southampton youth system, Isgrove enjoyed a superb year on loan at Barnsley when they won the League One Play-Off Final and Johnstone’s Paint Trophy. The Tykes may want to bring him back to Oakwell.
His four starts for the Saints all came in cup competitions, with a sole Premier League appearances coming as a substitute back in August 2014. He has also had brief loan spells at Peterborough and Sheffield Wednesday.
Meanwhile, QPR have reportedly joined Ipswich, Leeds and Bolton in the race to sign Manchester City winger Bersant Celina on a season-long loan.
