Ipswich Town target transfer of Barnsley player


Barnsley striker Cauley Woodrow is a transfer target for Ipswich Town this summer, according to TWTD.

The Tykes have suffered relegation from the Championship and into League One for the upcoming 2022-23 season and are at risk of potentially losing some of their best players during the summer window.

However, they could be on the verge of losing their captain to a division rival, with Woodrow on the Tractor Boys shortlist for potential forward line additions at Portman Road in the coming months.

Quiz: Can you name which club Ipswich Town have sold these 23 players to in the last decade?

The 27-year-old has been a Barnsley player since 2018 when he initially joined the Yorkshire club on loan from Fulham before turning it on a permanent transfer in January 2019.

Woodrow featured prominently in the Championship and League One for Barnsley, with his best league goalscoring season scoring 16 in the 2018-19 third tier season, before scoring 14 times the following campaign in the Championship.

He scored just four league goals last season, with his appearances limited to just 28 thanks to a knee injury mid-season.

The verdict

With a year left on his contract at Barnsley, Woodrow could be aiming for the exit door at Oakwell.

And being a Hertfordshire-born man, Ipswich are much closer to their roots, which could be an attractive option if they decide to make a bid.

The Tractor Boys will need new faces due to the departures of James Norwood and Macauley Bonne, and Woodrow is a proven goalscorer at League One level and higher.

Provided he is fit and healthy again after his knee surgery midway through the 2021-22 season, Woodrow would be a fantastic addition to Portman Road – should they choose him as their number one target.
