January transfer window business in the offing for Ipswich Town
Ipswich Town's general manager of football operations Lee O'Neill has revealed the club are hoping to be active in the January transfer market – despite being restricted by a salary cap.
A £2.5m ceiling in annual expenditure on first-team squads was introduced at League One level in August and the Blues are already at the maximum limit.
Nevertheless, having recently been linked with a move for former Manchester City forward Ched Evans, Ipswich are anticipating some business being done.
O'Neill told the club's website: “We are speaking to clubs about players at the moment and we are hopeful that we will be able to add one or two new faces to the squad this month.
“We are restricted in what we can do because we are at the limit in terms of the salary cap.
"Bringing in young players on loan is one avenue and that is something we are looking at. There will have to be a degree of juggling if we want to add someone over 21 but that is also an option we are exploring.
“We also have to be aware that we have got a number of players coming back from injury as well so it’s about getting the balance right but we are certainly working on adding to the squad.”
