Birmingham City boss Lee Bowyer will allow Sam Cosgrove to leave on loan this summer with Ipswich Town interested, reports The Sun on Sunday (20.06.21, pg. 65).

Cosgrove, 24, joined Birmingham City form Aberdeen in the January transfer window.

He arrived for close to £2million but in 12 Championship appearances he’d fail to score for Birmingham City.

Now, Bowyer is reportedly willing to let the Englishman leave on loan this summer to ensure game-time in the 2021/22 season and Paul Cook’s Ipswich Town are plotting an ‘ambitious’ move for the striker.

Alan Nixon writes however that the Tractor Boys ‘may wait to find out about any Championship interest’ before making a move for Cosgrove.

Cosgrove was brought in by Karanka but it wouldn’t work out for the striker during the second half of the season. The change in manager won’t have helped but a loan move might be exactly what Cosgrove needs.

After proving so prolific for Aberdeen and at European level too, League One might feel like a step down but if he wants to prove himself to Bowyer then he’ll have to prove himself out on loan it seems.

For Ipswich it’d be a really good signing but as Nixon writes, it’s ‘ambitious’ from the club.

The Tractor Boys have started the summer strongly with a few keen acquisitions now and Cosgrove might just top the lot of he ends up joining the club on loan this summer.
