DARREN Ambrose could be on his way back to Ipswich.

But any return is likely to depend on Town winning promotion to the Premiership.

They are unlikely to be able to fund the £1million move unless they clinch a top-flight return over the remaining six games of the season.

Boss Joe Royle admitted today that he had failed in a bid to land 21-year-old Ambrose on loan.

He said: “That was before Christmas. I spoke to Graeme Souness then and I haven't spoken to him since.

“We know Darren and we like him, but I know other clubs are also interested because they have asked me about him.
