IPSWICH will still be subject to tight transfer controls when they come out of administration.

The Football League confirmed today that Town will still need to seek their permission before bringing in any new players.

Ipswich had a transfer embargo imposed when they went into administration three months ago.

It meant manager Joe Royle's hands were tied as he attempted to plot a promotion route via the play-offs.

Several players are set to depart Portman Road after Sunday's last game of the season at Derby, meaning there will be a number of vacancies for the Town boss to fill.

Royle has targeted several players as part of his rebuilding plans for the new campaign, but every deal will be subject to Football League scrutiny.

A spokesman confirmed: "When Ipswich come out of administration they will have to agree some sort of transfer budget with the Football League.

"They will still have to apply to us before they sign any new players. Any such deals can only go through with our permission."
