Ipswich Town fans have taken to social media to react to the news that star defender Adam Webster is set to join Bristol City.

The somewhat surprising move was revealed this afternoon with Webster, who missed much of last season through injury, in Bristol for a medical ahead of the move, which we understand to be for an initial fee of £3.5m, which could rise as high as £8m.

Webster’s former club Portsmouth will receive a sell-on fee, believed to be 20%, effectively doubling what Town initially paid for him (£700k) two years ago.

We understand that new Blues boss Paul Hurst has been assured by owner Marcus Evans that the funds raised will go straight into his transfer kitty as he looks to mould his own squad this summer.
