Reading and Bolton Join Town in Eyeing Tunnicliffe
Monday, 10th Jul 2017 11:17
Reading and Bolton are reported to have joined the Blues in showing interest in free agent former Town loanee Ryan Tunnicliffe.
Last month, TWTD revealed that Mick McCarthy is weighing-up whether to bring the 24-year-old, who left Fulham at the end of last season, back to Portman Road.
Now, according to HITC Sport, the Royals and the Trotters are also keen on the one-time Manchester United youngster.
Tunnicliffe previously spent time on loan with the Blues in the first half of the 2013/14 season when with the Red Devils, making 24 starts and five sub appearances without scoring.
The Heywood-born midfielder, who we understand would be keen on a permanent move to the Blues having enjoyed his time at Portman Road, was due to stay with Town for the whole season but was sold to Fulham in the January window.
The former England U16 and U17 international ended last season on loan at Wigan, his second spell with the Latics, having also spent time as a loanee at Peterborough, Barnsley and Blackburn earlier in his career.

End of Season Grades by BlueBloke

TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
On This Day - Saturday 28th April 1962 by clivebleedingthomas
As a 15-year-old I make my way to Portman Road full of anticipation and anxiety. Our rivals, Burnley, are playing at home to already relegated Chelsea. A home win must be on the cards. On the following Tuesday they will play their game in hand against Sheffield Wednesday. However, Town are top of Division One and facing Aston Villa.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
I am already sick of the fiasco involving our new leader, the interview with our owner and all that goes with it, so I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
