Ipswich Town reportedly plotting move for Barnsley's former England youth international Cauley Woodrow

More news, no ads


Cauley Woodrow is reportedly on a list of potential summer transfer targets for Ipswich Town.

It is believed boss Kieran McKenna is particularly keen to bolster his attacking options ahead of the new campaign getting under way after seeing his side dominate the majority of matches since his appointment, but too often goals were in short supply.

And according to TWTD, Barnsley frontman Woodrow could be the player to help ease some of the problems in front of goal.

After numerous loan spells, the 27-year-old joined Barnsley on a permanent basis from Fulham in January 2019 for an undisclosed fee.

Woodrow, who has been capped by England at under-17, under-20 and under-21 level, has scored a total of 53 goals from 157 outings for the Tykes.

The report adds that while Woodrow could still see out the final 12 months of his contract at Oakwell, Barnsley may be forced to sell some of their key players to raise funds after being relegated from the Championship last term.

Leicester City centre-forward George Hirst, who has recently had loan spells with Rotherham United and Portsmouth, is also thought to be on McKenna's list of targets.

The need for new strikers has increased following the release of James Norwood, while Macauley Bonne has returned to his parent club Queens Park Rangers after a season-long loan stint with his hometown club.

Ipswich recently activated the one-year option in Tyreece Simpson's contract, but the young forward has informed the club of his desire to move on.
