Ipswich Town won’t be signing Rangers midfielder Jordan Jones, according to a fresh report which emerged on Wednesday evening.
The Lowdown: Jones surplus to requirements
The Gers clinched Scottish Premiership title glory last season, but Jones was elsewhere as Steven Gerrard’s side enjoyed their success.
The 26-year-old joined Sunderland on loan in January, making 20 appearances for the Black Cats and helping them reach the League One playoffs.
A summer exit from Ibrox now looks on the cards for Jones, with Ipswich one of the clubs seen as potential suitors.

The Latest: Ipswich pull out of move
According to The East Anglian Daily Times, however, a move to Portman Road is off after they pulled the plug on a deal taking place.
Ipswich had muscled ahead of Sunderland earlier on Wednesday but the midfielder will now look elsewhere, with the new season getting closer all the time and Rangers beginning the defence of their crown at home to Livingston on Saturday.
The Verdict: Exit best for all parties
It would be beneficial for all parties if he moved on and enjoyed a fresh challenge this summer, with the midfielder still having plenty to offer at the right level.
A goal he scored for Sunderland last season was hailed as ‘unbelievable’ by Kevin Phillips, highlighting the quality he possesses on his day.
