Ipswich Town are pondering making a move for Colchester United defender Kane Vincent-Young according to Football Insider.
The full back’s future was the subject of speculation earlier in the transfer window with Championship sides Luton Town and Charlton Athletic both having an interest in him but with the transfer market now closed for those clubs it paves the way for Ipswich to swoop with League One and League Two clubs still able to sign players.
Ipswich boss Paul Lambert is keen to strengthen his side’s defensive options before the transfer window closes on September 2nd and likes Vincent-Young’s versatility as he is able to play at left back and right back along the defensive line.
Vincent-Young joined Colchester in 2014 and progressed from the club’s academy into the first-team making over 100 appearances for the club.
Formerly of Spurs, Ipswich are hoping to complete the signing of him before their transfer windows closes in little over two weeks to go.
The 23-year-old was on trial with the Tractor Boys last summer but Paul Hurst, who could have snapped him for a compensation fee, decided against it and Vincent-Young subsequently signed a new two-year deal with Colchester but with Lambert now in charge he could be on his way back to Portman Road.
Strong, quick and skilful, Vincent-Young is also capable of playing further up the pitch and that versatility will appeal to Blues boss Paul Lambert as he looks to add further reinforcements before the transfer window closes.
Lambert has said he wants to add three players to his squad before September 2nd and Vincent-Young could appear to be one of them.
