The 31-year-old made just six starts and six substitute appearances for the Blues last season after joining as a free agent and ended up being released following a fall-out with manager Mick McCarthy.

His last competitive appearance was in the 1-0 defeat at Lincoln City in an FA Cup third round replay back on January 17.

Meanwhile, former Blues winger Cameron Stewart – another player who flopped at Portman Road – is reportedly set to sign for League One club Oldham Athletic.

The former Manchester United youngster, now 26, has been a free agent ever since being released by Town in August 2016.

He made just two substitute appearances, both in the FA Cup, during three seasons at Portman Road.
