Ipswich Town forward Jordan Roberts is the subject of loan offers from Bradford City, Plymouth Argyle and MK Dons, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

All three clubs are understood to have agreed terms for a loan deal with Ipswich and now it is up to Roberts to decide where he wants to go.

 

Roberts joined Ipswich last summer, initially as a left-sided winger under the previous manager Paul Hurst, but was unable to gain regular playing time, making just two substitute appearances.

Following Paul Lambert’s arrival at the club in October, he immediately installed Jordan into his starting line-up at centre forward where he subsequently went on to make a further five starts and four substitute appearances.

With Ipswich still rooted to the bottom of the table and at risk of dropping into the third tier of English football for the first time in their history, Lambert has been working tirelessly to add more experience to his side and recent signings have increased competition for places at Portman Road.

Roberts was not included in the squad for Saturday's win over Rotherham with January signings Will Keane and Colin Quaner both starting in attack.

Lambert remains a big admirer of Roberts, but he is open to the idea of allowing the 25-year-old to leave the club on a temporary basis to get more playing time in the second half of the season.
