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.
- 1 Firefighters tackling fire near popular Suffolk hotel and spa
- 2 Popular family-run butchers announces closure
- 3 'Really concerning' – Shock after machete attack at Ipswich sports centre
- 4 Tributes paid to Ipswich man who could 'make magic happen'
- 5 Two teenagers charged after man injured in machete attack
- 6 'Risk of injury' - Aldi recalls product due to safety fears
- 7 85 school children under 4 suspended in Suffolk
- 8 New details of plans to convert Ipswich church into music venue revealed
- 9 Search for missing man who planned 70-mile walk home still ongoing
- 10 Another heatwave on its way as temperatures set to soar in Suffolk
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."
