Coventry City transfer target Kayden Jackson has touched on interest shown in him by the Sky Blues and his current contract situation at Ipswich Town.
Coventry boss Mark Robins has followed up promotion to the Championship with a number of significant signings this summer.
With preparations for the 2020/21 season well underway, Robins is also seemingly keen to bolster his attacking options and a link to Ipswich striker Jackson has developed in recent weeks.
Jackson, who signed for Ipswich in 2018 from Accrington Stanley, is entering the final year of his deal at Portman Road. Talks are said to have been ongoing between the £720,000-valued striker and his current club over an option to extend but it is claimed that the Suffolk outfit’s latest offer has been rejected.
That recent stall in talks has prompted the likes of Coventry to show interest in the striker, who netted an impressive 11 goals in 32 games last season.
Jackson has now discussed his immediate future, telling East Anglian Daily Times: “Whatever is going on is separate to anything, I don’t really deal too much on that side. It’s all down to the agent.
“At the end of the day I’m an Ipswich player and I’ve got to contract here potentially for another two years, so for me it’s all about concentrating on the football and the season ahead.
“Last season was a massive disappointment for all of us. I’m just looking to improve on what I did and hopefully we can get the end result that we wanted last season.”
Robins has done excellent business in the transfer window so far this season but one area where he hasn’t improved is at centre forward, and it may be that Jackson is the perfect summer arrival.
The 11-goal League One striker is seemingly stalling on a new deal with Ipswich and a move to Coventry does not seem out of the question. Given his scoring return last season, the Sky Blues could probably do a lot worse than get him in ahead of their Championship campaign.
