Ipswich Town and Burton Albion are vying to sign Fulham striker Cauley Woodrow, The Mirror reports [15 May, page 44].

Woodrow has returned to Craven Cottage following a successful half-season loan with Burton, for whom he scored five goals and created two in 14 outings.

However, Ipswich were previously linked with a move for the 22-year-old [The Sun] and appear keen to get their man second time around.

Woodrow has struggled for regular game time under Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic and is unlikely to feature in the Serbian's plans next season, whether the Cottagers are promoted or not.

And the London club shouldn't require much persuading to part with the England Under-21 international, given his contract expires at the end of next season.

Ipswich and Burton, who finished four points and one point above the Championship's bottom three in 2016-17, were also among the division's lowest scorers - finding the net on 48 and 49 occasions respectively.

Can Ipswich persuade Woodrow to choose them over Burton?
