IPSWICH boss Joe Royle was today closing in on a loan signing.

The Town boss said: “We're as close as we've ever been - I'm just waiting for a call to say whether we have a deal or not.”

Royle was reluctant to identify the player, although he admitted: “It is someone I have been talking to, as well as his club and his agent, for a few weeks now.

“The reason I don't want to say too much is that if it comes to nothing it just looks like a puff of dust and we're no further forward.”
