A pundit advises Blackburn Rovers to sign a striker in light of interest from Ipswich

Pundit Carlton Palmer believes that Blackburn Rovers should cash in on Ipswich target Sam Gallagher this month.

Journalist Nick Mashitter has reported on X that the Tractor Boys have had two bids worth £1 million and £1.5 million rejected for the Blackburn man.

Ipswich are looking to sign a striker this month thanks to George Hirst’s injury, although Alan Nixon has reported that Gallagher’s salary “may be a big problem” for the Tractor Boys.

Sam Gallagher, the striker for Blackburn Rovers, is drawing interest from Ipswich Town.

Palmer told FLW that he expected Ipswich to come back with a stronger offer for the striker.”I don’t understand why Blackburn are turning down the bids,” he stated.

“With the loan of a player, Blackburn and Ipswich have already transacted business this season.

“Ipswich need to move on now and get somebody in with the news that George Hirst has picked up a long-term injury, so Ipswich have to bring in another front player, and I’m sure they will go back with an improved offer to sign Sam Gallagher.”

Ipswich Town has reportedly been linked to a move for Birmingham City loanee Jay Stansfield this month, according to Football Insider.

The team is obviously keen to bring in a striker this month, and the young Fulham player who has impressed in the Championship with Birmingham is supposedly on the Tractor Boys’ radar.

Stansfield was operating out of St Andrew’s as usual, according to an article that appeared in the Birmingham World last week, despite interest from Sunderland and Ipswich.

The Blues had hired his brother to work in the club’s backroom, but the Tractor Boys were still expecting to get the player out of Birmingham, according to Alan Nixon’s account on Sunday.

Ipswich is reportedly still keen to sign him and is putting in a lot of effort to strengthen their attacking corps by February 1.

Ipswich goalie prolongs loan to National League

Nick Hayes, a 24-year-old goalkeeper, has made the decision to remain on loan at non-league Solihull Moors until the end of the current season.

Upon his arrival to the Midlands-based squad one month ago, he has shown enough to warrant an extension of his loan. In six games, he has kept two clean sheets.

In January 2022, Hayes departed from Hemel Hempstead Town to sign with Ipswich. He spent the previous campaign on loan with Southend United. Given that he hasn’t appeared for the first team and that his contract expires in the summer, it’s uncertain how long the shot-stopper will be with the Tractor Boys.

Goalkeeper Nick Hayes, 24, has decided to stay with non-league Solihull Moors until the end of the current campaign on a loan.

After joining the Midlands-based team last month, he has performed well enough to have his loan extended. He has kept two clean sheets in six games.

Hayes left Hemel Hempstead Town to sign with Ipswich in January 2022. The previous season, he was on loan at Southend United. It’s unclear if the shot-stopper will stay with the Tractor Boys in the long run because his contract expires in the summer and he hasn’t played for the first team.
