Blues Linked With Coventry Midfielder Shipley
Tuesday, 31st Dec 2019 13:34
Town boss Paul Lambert is reported to be keen on Coventry City midfielder Jordan Shipley.
According to Coventry Live, Shipley, 22, caught the eye of the Blues manager over the course of the three recent fixtures between the sides, two in the FA Cup and one in League One, and could be tempted into a move for the Leamington Spa-born schemer in January.
Shipley, who is contracted to the Sky Blues until June 2021, came through the academy ranks at Coventry, breaking into the first team in April 2017. Since then the Republic of Ireland U21 international has gone on to make 82 starts and 25 sub appearances, scoring 14 goals, five this season, including one against the Blues in the FA Cup replay at Portman Road.
While Town boss Lambert has said he’d like to add to his squad in January he has repeatedly said that players may have to leave before he can recruit.
“We can only do it if there’s money available or we sold some guys,” he said following the Lincoln match. “We don’t have the money, we can’t go out and buy.”

The Grim Experience of Becoming a Socially-Distanced Supporter by chazza
Second only to the terrible the footballing performance against Portsmouth comes the grim experience of becoming a 'socially-distanced' supporter.
Season's Beatings by Moggasknockdown
It is a bitterly disheartening experience supporting Ipswich. At every sliding doors moment in our recent history we have taken the wrong path, at every opportunity for schadenfreude an ex-player will decisively score, or create or generally remind us all that they are happier now, away from the depressing, soul-destroying experience that was their Ipswich career.
