Ipswich agree deal to sign Liam Delap

According to Sky Sports, Premier League new boys Ipswich Town have agreed a deal with Manchester City for the signing of England youth international striker Liam Delap. 

It has been reported that a deal to take Delap to Portman Road is in the region of £15 million with a further £5 million in add-ons and it has also been rumoured that 21-year-old has been seen down in Suffolk already.

Delap has six first-team appearances for the Cityzens but has spent the last two seasons out on loan in the Championship; firstly with Stoke City and Preston North End in the 2022/23 campaign before then scoring eight goals in 31 appearances for Hull City last year.

At international level, Delap has represented England at U16, U17, U18, U19, U20 and U21 level and has scored 13 goals in 30 youth caps for the Young Lions. He is, though, eligible to represent Ireland and his father, Rory, famously once played for the Irish as well as Stoke City among others.

Ipswich, who have gained back-to-back automatic promotions from League One to the top-flight under the management of Kieran McKenna, have already made two additions this summer with the arrivals of Omari Hutchinson for a fee in the region of £20 million from Chelsea as well as Ben Johnson on a free transfer from West Ham United.

It has also been reported that the Tractor Boys are set to sign Hull City duo Jacob Greaves and Jaden Philogene for a combined fee of £35 million with both players having undergone medicals this week.
