Experience goes a long way in the Championship, just look at what Hull City achieved with Dean Windass and Nicky Barmby last season. Ipswich Town manager Jim Magilton is hoping to emulate the Tigers’ success by bringing in a Spaniard who might just have one or two decent seasons of football left in him.
Ivan Campo was a pretty popular figure at Bolton Wanderers, the fans seem to sing his name as much as anyone else over the past couple of seasons. As for experience, the defender-cum-midfielder has it in droves, having spent several seasons at Real Madrid before arriving in England. The official Ipswich site reports that the Tractor Boys are confident of getting their man.
Jim told the Club website: “I will be showing Ivan around the training ground and Portman Road.
“He has played at the highest level for many years and is someone I feel could do a good job for us.
“He’s got bags of experience and could come into the Club and really help our younger players but we haven’t got that far down the line yet.
“We will sit down and have a chat and if there is something that we can sort out, then great. If not, we move on.”
Ipswich fans, surely you would want to land someone who can boast a Champions League medal, even if he plays just a bit part for Town next season? Away from home was where Magilton’s men came unstuck last term, and Camp could certainly keep things steadier on the team’s travels.
