Ipswich Town are considering a move for Reading striker Noel Hunt, according to reports.

Hunt played a key role in helping Brian McDermott’s side to secure a playoff place this season, enjoying a successful strike partnership with fellow Republic of Ireland international Shane Long. Despite injury problems, Hunt netted 10 league goals in 22 starts and 14 substitute appearances this season, but the 27-year-old could well be sold this summer with just one year left on his contract with the Royals. Ipswich are said to have made an enquiry for Hunt, whose brother Stephen plays for Wolverhampton Wanderers, though the Blues look likely to face competition from Championship rivals Portsmouth.

Town boss Paul Jewell has already managed to tempt defender Ivar Ingimarsson from the Madejski Stadium this summer and could well look to the Royals again as he continues his search for additions to his strikeforce. Sheffield United striker Ched Evans continues to be linked with a switch to Portman Road, though the Blues have missed out on Nathan Tyson. The former Nottingham Forest frontman, who was linked with Town last month, has now joined Derby County.
