Ipswich in talks to sign Judge from Brentford

Ipswich have made an approach to sign Alan Judge from Brentford.

The two clubs held talks on Friday and will continue to discuss a potential deal over the weekend.

Judge, 30, has entered the final six months of his Bees contract and has struggled to nail down a first-team place this season.

The Republic of Ireland international has made just four Championship starts this term and only seven since recovering from a broken leg.

Judge spent a year and nine months on the sidelines following a tackle from Luke Hyam against Ipswich at Portman Road in 2016.
