Ipswich Town set to beat Barnsley to Reading striker

Sky Bet Championship side Ipswich Town remain favourites to sign striker Dominic Samuel from Reading, according to Sun journalist Alan Nixon.

Nixon SamuelsMick McCarthy has already been busy throughout this summer’s transfer window, bringing Joe Garner, Emyr Huws, Tom Adeyemi and Bersant Celina to Portman Road so far, but is now looking to sign young striker Dominic Samuel on a permanent deal.

23-year-old Samuel broke into the Royals’ first-team in 2012 after progressing through the club’s successful academy system. But, since making his first-team debut at Sunderland, Samuel has found first-team chances limited, thus being exploited through the loan system.

The young striker joined then League One side Colchester United on a month’s loan deal in January 2013 but made only two appearances before returning to his parent Club. Samuel joined team-mate Lawson D’Ath on a month’s loan at Dagenham & Redbrige in January 2014, but an injury sustained in his debut against Fleetwood Town led to the Royals cutting his loan move short.

Samuel then joined Coventry City on loan in January 2015 until April, finding the net on his debut against Rochdale. But the injury hit striker was struck by another injury as he fractured his ankle in a 1-0 defeat to Leyton Orient in April, ruling him out of the rest of the season.

The England under-19 international has made three appearances for the Young Lions, netting twice for the young national team.

Since joining Ipswich on-loan in January 2017, Samuel has made 6 appearances for the Tractor Boys but only found the net on one occasion. With Tom Lawrence returning to parent club Leicester City, the Blues are looking for a goalscorer and Mick McCarthy deems Samuel suitable to fill the role.
