JIM Magilton has revealed that talks are still in progress about Town signing Nuremburg's Angelos Charisteas and Rudi Skácel from Southampton.

Of the Greek striker, who would have a price tag of around £2.5m, he said: “We have spoken to his agent and we are still hoping the boy will come over to Ipswich and have a look around and have talks.

“If we can find common ground then good and we are making preparations to try and get him in.

“If not then we have one or two other things going on.

“It shows our intent. We are looking to bring in the right sort of quality.
