Ipswich Town have cooled their interest in Cardiff striker Omar Bogle, according to the East Anglian Times.
The Birmingham Mail report that we are close to securing a loan deal for the 26-year-old, and it looks as if we have been beaten the Tractor Boys to the punch.
Cardiff were believed to be keen to sell Bogle on a permanent basis, but it appears they have settled on the player leaving on a temporary deal.
The forward is not in the Bluebirds boss Neil Warnock’s first team plans after having been loaned out to Peterborough for the second half of last season.
With us reportedly limited to signing players with wages below £10,000-£11,000 a week, it looks as though the former Grimsby and Wigan striker is the best candidate available.
However, Bogle is likely to be backup for the likes of Lukas Jutkiewicz and Che Adams who will be Garry Monk’s favoured front pairing this campaign.
