Ex Apprentice and Ipswich Town Academy product Jordan Rhodes is on target to join the rest of the first team squad for the start of pre-season training at the beginning of July.
19 year old Rhodes missed the final month of the season after sustaining a broken metatarsal while on loan at Brentford.
Town physio Matt Byard told the Club’s offical website:
“As things stand he should be back for the start of pre-season training. He’s had an x-ray and is doing well.”
Elsewhere, Tractor boys midfielder Liam Trotter is set to reject a new deal with the Club in order to join Scunthorpe United, BBC Radio Humberside reports.
The 20-year-old has been offered a new contract by Ipswich boss Roy Keane but there are suggestions he is unhappy with the terms of the offer.
Trotter made 13 appearances for the Iron during a loan spell last season.
Keane told the club website he hopes Trotter’s future will be resolved soon.
“It’s that time at the moment when you have people away on holiday and we’ve also been involved in things like redeveloping the training ground but I expect it to be sorted out one way or another next week.”
Meanwhile, 19-year-old Ipswich midfielder Ed Upson has signed a new one-year deal.
