Press reports claim Ipswich Town are interested in signing Danny Woodards after the defender left Milton Keynes Dons on Friday.

Woodards rejected the offer of a new contract from the League One club following their playoff semi-final defeat to Peterborough United on Thursday evening. The 27-year-old has made 66 league appearances and scored one goal since arriving at Stadium:mk in 2009, with the Blues, Bristol City, Doncaster Rovers and Sheffield United all rumoured to be keen on signing him on a free transfer.

MK Dons manager Karl Robinson offered his praise for the departing Woodards, one of four players leaving the Buckinghamshire club this week. ‘Danny Woodards has made a great contribution during his two years with the Club,’ Robinson told The Dons’ Official Club Website. ‘I would like to place on record my thanks to all of the players and wish them the best of luck in the future.’

Ipswich are known to be looking at out-of-contract players this summer with the likes of Kieren Westwood, David Nugent, Aaron Cresswell and Nathan Tyson all linked in recent weeks. However, Town’s Chief Executive Simon Clegg has dampened speculation that the club are currently closing in on any new signings. ‘We’re working behind the scenes, there’s nothing that is imminent at this moment in time,’ Clegg told TWTD.co.uk, ‘but that doesn’t mean the situation might not change in 24 or 48 hours.’

  • I’m all for PJ building our squad on a tight budget. I just hope the ones he signs are hungry for success and and not just on the lookout for a nice pay packet….

  • Well only time will tell on that front. I don’t see someone like Woodards being that kind of player though – in fairness to him he was released by Chelsea in his youth days and has since had to work his way up with League Two and League One clubs, so I doubt a pay packet is his priority.
