Coventry: Birmingham City show interest in Sky Blues target Jackson - Coventry City Transfer Rumours

Coventry City have been joined by Birmingham City in the race to sign Kayden Jackson from Ipswich Town, according to Football Insider.

After sealing the League One title and gaining automatic promotion to the Championship, Sky Blues boss Mark Robins has already made significant changes to his squad this summer.

Gustavo Hamer and Julien Dacosta were two of the first names through the door at the club, whilst Marcel Hilssner has also been joined by former Aston Villa youngster Callum O’Hare and Ryan Giles.

With that recruitment, Robins has since been linked with a new arrival in the shape of Ipswich striker Jackson.

However, the Coventry boss now faces stiff competition from two Championship rivals as Stoke City and Birmingham City are both said to be keen.

Jackson, who signed for Ipswich in 2018 from Accrington Stanley, is entering the final year of his deal at Portman Road.

Talks are said to have been ongoing between the £720,000-valued striker and his current club over an option to extend his deal but it is claimed that a latest deal has been rejected.

That recent stall in talks has prompted the likes of Coventry, Stoke and Birmingham to show interest in the striker, who netted an impressive 11 goals in 32 games last season.

An interesting three-way transfer tussle is now beginning to take shape and whilst some would predict Coventry to be least favourites to sign Jackson, Robins’ excellent work at the club and the impressive summer arrivals thus far could tempt the striker to make such a move.

Birmingham and Stoke are both in desperate need for a striker and they would probably have more pulling power in terms of a financial package.

Who do you think Jackson will join this summer? Let us know in the comments section below…
