Does Sky Sports know something us Ipswich fans don’t?
A screenshot of an interview with Jonny Williams on Sky Sports News HQ at the weekend has been doing the rounds on social media after he was captioned as being of ‘Ipswich and Wales’.
While it is probably a typo, the loan signing of the man known as ‘Joniesta’ would do much to boost the confidence levels at Portman Road.
There is no doubt Williams played a pivotal role in the Tractor Boys’ play-off push last season, filling the void of attacking threat left following David McGoldrick’s injury.
Fans have been calling out for a creative midfielder to join the ranks during the summer transfer win-dow.
What Neil Warnock’s arrival does to any potential loan move is not known, and while Williams is not in their 25-man squad, he is of an age where he can still play for The Eagles.
If other media reports are to be believed, we face competition from Bolton Wanderers, Watford and recently-relegated Fulham to nab the Wales international on loan.
You would hope his successful spell with us last year would put us in pole position to land him.
Town return to action following the international break with two home games — against Millwall on Saturday (3pm) and Brighton on Tuesday (7.45pm), which acts as a perfect chance to get a couple of wins on the board, and end a five-game winless run.
Ian Holloway seems to have rejuvenated the Lions, with his side sitting fifth, while there has been much upheaval at the Amex this season for Brighton, with a plethora of new players and a new manager in the form of Sami Hyypia — two wins must be the aim for us.
