- Ipswich striker James Norwood has been put on the transfer list with Plymouth ready to bolster their attacking option
The 31-year-old started the season strongly and impressed Paul Cook with his conditioning and attitude in preseason.
But a hamstring strain sustained in the League Cup clash with Newport saw him fall down the pecking order at Portman Road with Macauley Bonne arriving on-loan from QPR .
The former Exeter City striker has twice been Ipswich’s leading marksman despite injury woes and set-backs and may provide the solution to Plymouth run for promotion with the extra fire power.
The reason behind Town’s decision to place Norwood on the transfer list has been revealed and it is not down to footballing reasons.
Back in July, Norwood was found guilty of driving under the influence of alcohol, but since then has had his driving ban suspended subject to an appeal which will take place later this month.
It is not only this situation which has found Norwood in hot water at Ipswich, but it is also his activity on social media which has left the club’s new hierarchy unimpressed. This has ultimately led to the board making the decision to transfer list Norwood and make him train with Ipswich’s U23 squad until he finds a new club.
