Ipswich Town confirm rejection of Bournemouth offer for Kayden Jackson
Manager Paul Lambert has confirmed Ipswich Town rejected a bid from Bournemouth for their striker Kayden Jackson.
Reports surfaced earlier this week that the Cherries, who were relegated from the Premier League at the end of last term, had made a move for the forward.
Speaking to the press this morning, Lambert admitted there had been interest, but the offer for the 26-year-old fell short of Ipswich owner Marcus Evans' valuation.
“I found out after the game on Tuesday (against Arsenal Under-21s) that Bournemouth put a bid in for Kayden,” he said.
“I don’t think it was up to Marcus’ valuation. How that might transpire, I don’t know, that’s up to Bournemouth and what they want to do.
“I spoke to Kayden the other day and he was really good. No issues at all. He’s got a little injury at the minute but he was really professional about it.”
