Struggling Ipswich Town have delighted their long-suffering fans by snapping up ELEVEN players in just one day – with 12 days of the of the transfer window remaining.
The Tractor Boys paid £100,000 for every one of Lincoln’s players, who include forwards, midfielders, defenders and a goalkeeper, in a clinical swoop worth a total of £1.1 million.
Under-fire club owner Marcus Evans dug deep to splash the cash and raise morale following this week’s humiliating FA Cup replay defeat at non-league Lincoln.
A club spokesman dismissed fears that buying so many players at once could unsettle team spirit.
“Nonsense,” he said. “They have all been bought from the same team so they know each other well. They are better than us, man for man, and will all go straight into the team that travels to Huddersfield this Saturday.”
The spokesman explained Ipswich had watched the Lincoln team closely twice in recent weeks, and felt it was easier to buy the whole lot of them and simply get them to play for Ipswich instead.
