Ipswich To Fight For Tyson?

Ipswich To Fight For Tyson?

Ipswich Town are reported to be in the hunt for Nottingham Forest striker Nathan Tyson, who is out-of-contract this summer.

Tyson, who has scored 35 league goals in 188 appearances since arriving at Forest in November 2005, is set to leave the City Ground this summer having been told by boss Billy Davies that he will not be offered a new deal. Ipswich are rumoured to be amongst a number of Championship clubs interested in the 29-year-old frontman, who can also play in midfield, though Derby County look to be very much leading the chase at present having been linked with the former Wycombe Wanderers man on a number of previous occasions.

A striker is certainly top of Paul Jewell's shopping list in the transfer market this summer, and despite Tyson's modest scoring rate, the Ipswich manager could well be tempted to snatch him up on a free transfer. The Blues have previously had a £2.3 million bid rejected for Doncaster Rovers striker Billy Sharp, whilst any faint hopes of signing Watford's Danny Graham look to have been scuppered after newly-promoted QPR were understood to have made a £2.5 million bid on Thursday.

I would not mind having him in a Town shirt.

Yeah, I think we have to be looking at options like this. Tyson's hardly been spectacular at Forest in the Championship, but he's available for free and could be a solid addition considering he can play up front or in midfield. From what I'm seeing though, I'd be somewhat surprised if he's not travelling up the A52 to Pride Park very soon.

Tyson has been a great servant of our club and many of us are sorry to see him go. We have played him as a left winger the past 2 seasons, and his finishing is very rusty. Will never forget his volley against Man City when we beat them in the cup. He could do a good job for you guys and I bet he'd prefer you to derby as their fans hate him for taunting them when we beat them. Go get him while you can!

Thanks for the lowdown, Husky Red! Rusty finisher, eh? Do you think he is best played as a midfielder or up front?

I reckon he would be a shoe in to our side and the style of football Town like to play. As to him being a rusty finisher, im sure if we give him enough ammo he will get some on target.
