Ipswich have held talks with St Mirren over bringing boss Jack Ross to the club.

According to Sky Sports, the two clubs have been in negotiations over potentially taking the manager to Portman Road.

Ipswich and boss Mick McCarthy parted ways after six seasons with the club and they’re now looking for a new manager.

Ross, Paul Cook, Paul Hurst, Scott Parker and Neil Lennon have all been linked with the job and unsurprisingly, Jack Ross is now the favourite to take the helm at Ipswich.

The St Mirren manager had a superb 2017/18 season, taking the club into the top tier of Scottish football.

For taking the club into the Premier League, he was also awarded the SPFL Championship Manager of the Year award.

He’s impressed Ipswich chiefs with his management in Scotland and now the man himself has confirmed that the clubs have held talks over a move to England.

He said to Sky Sports: “I think there has been communication between the clubs, but at the moment I don’t know anything more than that.

“At the moment my work and my focus is very much on trying to build a squad that will be progressive here and until that changes it will remain the case.”

Ipswich aren’t the first club to be linked with a move for Ross, with Barnsley also holding talks with the manager over a potential move to Oakwell earlier in the season.

However, the boss decided to stay at St Mirren and lead them to Championship title. But, he could soon swap St Mirren for England and Ipswich.
