Ipswich Town captain linked with summer switch to MLS side

According to a report from the Daily Mail (via East Anglian Daily Times), Ipswich Town captain Luke Chambers has on the radar of MLS outfit Chicago Fire.

MLS side Chicago Fire are taking an interest in Ipswich Town defender Luke Chambers, the Daily Mail writes.

Chambers’ contract at Portman Road is set to expire at the end of this season and could bring an end to his six-and-a-half-year spell at the club with Chicago Fire keeping eyes on him. Ipswich do have an option to extend his current deal at the club by another 12 months, but they are yet to exercise it.

The 33-year-old started his football career with Northampton Town in League Two, making his professional debut in 2003 after making his way through the club’s academy. He spent four years at senior level with the club from 2003 to 2007, playing 103 games for the Cobblers.

Chambers departed the club to join Nottingham Forest, who were playing in League One at the time. He followed Colin Calderwood from Northampton to Nottingham and went on to play 225 times from Forest over the course of five years with the club.

The skipper has played over 300 games for the Tractor Boys since moving to Portman Road in 2012, but with his contract expiring at the end of the season and Chicago Fire interested, Chambers may not add many more to that total.

The defender has been an influential figure at the club since his arrival from fellow Championship side Nottingham Forest in 2012, becoming their club captain in 2014.
