Ipswich Town left back Jonas Knudsen is being eyed by two top clubs back in his homeland, it has been reported.
The Danish international, 26, sparked rumours of a move away recently when he revealed he’d be interested in testing the market in January, given there had been no movement from Town on a new deal. He admitted that Middlesbrough and Stoke has both been in contact in the summer.
And now, according to Danish newspaper BT Sport’s podcast, the Danish Superliga top two, FC Copenhagen and FC Midtylland, are both considering a swoop for the international.
The former are said to have already made contact with Kundsen’s agent, but would need to move a player on first before committing to a bid for Knudsen.
New boss Paul Lambert revealed last month that he’s recommended to owner Marcus Evans that Knudsen be offered a new deal, and the player himself said last week that he’s happy at Town and will give his all for the club.
