Hull City have revealed that Ipswich Town have made an approach to sign Jimmy Bullard on loan, according to reports.

32-year-old Bullard previously played under new Ipswich manager Paul Jewell during his days at Wigan Athletic, and was a member of the Latics team that won promotion to the Premier League at Town’s expense in 2005. Jewell now appears to be interested in a reunion with the former Fulham midfielder by bringing him to Portman Road.

The story comes at an interesting time at Town amidst mounting rumours about the future of captain David Norris. Speculation arose last week about the midfielder attracting interest from Portsmouth, and Pompey manager Steve Cotterill has since been widely reported as claiming the player wishes to move to Fratton Park, but Jewell has denied the suggestion. Norris is one of 21 players whose current contracts expire at the end of the season, and he has already urged Town to act quickly if they are to secure his future. The question is, could Bullard now be seen as a replacement?
