THE Angelos Charisteas deal is dead, according to the player's agent.

Paul Koulsoliakos also claims there has not been any recent contact with the Blues, which directly contradicts reports from Portman Road.

Town are still in the hunt for an experienced and proven goal-scorer and say have not given up on the Nuremburg and Greece striker.

Koulsoliakos said: “If we had something more concrete then we would be willing to listen but there is nothing on the table. I'm aware there was interest a few weeks ago but since then have had no contact with Ipswich Town

“I have had talks with clubs from all around Europe but not with Ipswich Town.

“I would be prepared to fly to Russia, Azerbaijan or wherever, if there was a good deal available for any of my clients.”

Meanwhile, Huddersfield's Stan Ternent is hoping to secure the signature of Gary Roberts within the next 48 hours.

Roberts has been given permission to speak to the Yorkshire club after the Blues accepted a bid, believed to be around £250,000, for the winger.

If personal terms are agreed, he will undergo a medical and could sign tomorrow or Monday.

Ternent is in Hartlepool for a tournament involving Hamilton Academicals, Sunderland and Hartlepool, said: “I hope to make Gary a Huddersfield Town player as soon as possible. We have agreed a fee with Ipswich and he is coming to have talks so if everything works it could happen this weekend or Monday as we are away.”

Roberts joined Ipswich from Accrington Stanley, initially on loan, and then for a deal worth around £250,000. Town boss Jim Magilton listed Roberts at the end of last season but insisted they at least got their money back.

Magilton said: “The player is now clear to speak to them and we will see what develops after that.”
