Football News Update: Ipswich Town Table Big-Money Bid for Hull City’s Jacob Greaves

Ipswich Town have made a substantial bid to acquire the services of Hull City defender Jacob Greaves, talkSPORT has learned. The 23-year-old centre-back has been a standout performer for the Tigers, and Hull are believed to value him at over £20 million.

Greaves, who has been with Hull City since the age of eight, enjoyed a remarkable 2023/24 season, scoring twice in 43 appearances and helping the club finish seventh in the EFL Championship. His impressive performances earned him a place in the Championship Team of the Season and the club’s Player of the Year award.

Ipswich Town, who recently secured promotion to the Premier League after a 22-year absence, are determined to make a strong start to the 2024/25 campaign. The allure of top-flight football under the guidance of manager Kieran McKenna could prove tempting for Greaves, whose father, Mark Greaves, was also a former Hull City defender.

“If Jadon wants to move and he says that he wants to go somewhere, it is his life. I love all my boys. So for me, I’m responsible of their career too. So they don’t need to play with us if they don’t want to play with us.”

Meanwhile, Greaves is not the only Hull City player who may depart the club this summer. Winger Jaden Philogene, who scored 12 goals in 32 appearances last season, has attracted interest from several Premier League clubs, including Everton.

As the transfer window heats up, the futures of Greaves and Philogene will be closely watched by Football News enthusiasts, particularly those following the Premier League, EFL Cup, EFL Championship, and the upcoming Euro 2024 and FIFA World Cup competitions.
