Celina in Ipswich to Complete Loan Move
Sunday, 2nd Jul 2017 19:06
Manchester City youngster Bersant Celina is in Ipswich ahead of the completion of his season-long loan to the Blues.
The 20-year-old posted pictures on his Instagram account which showed he was travelling to and then had arrived in town.
Kosovo international Celina’s move to Portman Road has been all but done for more than a week and he was expected at the club this weekend to undergo his medical and to tie up the formalities relating to his switch.
Town beat the likes of Bolton, QPR and Leeds to land the highly-rated forward, whose previous season-long loan in Holland with FC Twente officially ended on Friday.
Celina will travel to Ireland with the rest of the squad for the now traditional pre-season training camp at the Carton House Hotel in Co Kildare tomorrow morning.
Meanwhile, Wolves completed the signing of Scottish left-back Barry Douglas from Turkish club Konyaspor last night which may indicate they have ended their interest in Town’s Jonas Knudsen.
Elsewhere, former Southampton winger Lloyd Isgrove has rejoined his former loan club Barnsley.
The Blues and Charlton are understood to have been among a number of other clubs to have been keen to sign the 24-year-old Wales international.
Ex-Town midfielder Lee Bowyer, 40, has been named the assistant manager of the Addicks, the club where he started his career.

Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
