Ipswich Town manager Paul Cook reportedly eager to be reunited with Middlesbrough midfielder Sam Morsy

Ipswich Town have reportedly made a late move to sign Middlesbrough's Sam Morsy.

The Egyptian midfielder is well known to Ipswich manager Paul Cook, with the pair having previously worked together at Chesterfield and Wigan Athletic.

The duo won the League Two title with the former, while they got their hands on League One's top prize on two occasions during their Wigan stint.

And according to Teeside Live and the East Anglian Daily Times, Cook is keen to be reunited with the 29-year-old.

However, while Middlesbrough boss Neil Warnock could sanction Morsy's exit, it is believed he will only do so if a replacement can be recruited before Tuesday's transfer deadline passes.

Morsy has started three of Boro's five Championship fixtures this term, and he was sent off during the weekend's 1-1 draw against Blackburn Rovers.
