Ipswich Town are rumoured to be in the hunt for Sheffield United striker Daniel Bogdanovic, whilst Doncaster Rovers midfielder James Coppinger remains a target.

Bogdanovic joined Sheffield United in June 2010 following a successful spell at Barnsley, where he netted 16 times in 45 appearances. The Maltese international, who has won 33 caps for his country, has had a slightly tougher time at Bramall Lane with just 5 league goals having been largely restricted to appearances from the bench. Despite that, the 31-year-old is said to be interesting Ipswich, Burnley and Peterborough United, with reports claiming the Blades will allow him to leave on a free transfer despite having one year remaining on his contract.

Meanwhile Doncaster midfielder Coppinger is understood to be the subject of continued interest from Town. The 30-year-old was the subject of a failed £300,000 bid from Ipswich in May, with Rovers chairman John Ryan stating that the Blues would need to significantly improve their offer for his club’s Player of the Year. Despite that, reports suggest that Town manager Paul Jewell is continuing his pursuit of the one-time Newcastle United midfielder with a new offer of £400,000.

Further signings look likely in the next week or so with Jewell understood to have a number of active leads in the transfer market. The Blues’ boss was known to have made a bid for an unnamed striker last week with Ched Evans, Noel Hunt and Nathan Ellington all linked, whilst an enquiry has also been made for Preston North End defender Sean St Ledger.
