Ipswich Town have reportedly had a bid rejected by Dundee United for goalkeeper Benjamin Siegrist.

The offer – believed to be in the region of £350,000 – is said to be a little short of the Scottish side's valuation of their Swiss number one.

However, according to the Daily Record, it is anticipated that Ipswich will return to the table with an improved offer for the 29-year-old, who had loan spells with Burton Albion, Cambridge United, Solihull Moors and Wycombe Wanderers during his time at Aston Villa.

The report adds that Ipswich's EFL League One rivals Wigan Athletic are also keen on the former Switzerland youth international, while Scottish giants Celtic are not expected to firm up their January interest.

Another goalkeeper said to be on Ipswich's radar this summer is Ben Amos.

The 31-year-old is due to become a free agent next month when his contract at Charlton Athletic expires.

The South London Press report that the Addicks have offered the former Manchester United and Bolton Wanderers 'keeper fresh terms, but as yet no agreement has been reached.

It has previously been speculated that Ipswich manager Paul Cook is eager to sign two goalkeepers during the coming weeks, with Dai Cornell having already left the club and Thomas Holy also expected to move on.
