RICHARD Chaplow could join promotion-chasing Ipswich Town this week after being invited to train with Mick McCarthy's squad.

Chaplow, whose contract at Millwall expires in the summer, has been told that he will not be offered an extension and is free to leave.

The midfielder will spend the next few days at the Tractor Boys' base at Playford Road with a view to joining on loan before the weekend.

The 30-year-old has made ten appearances for the Lions this season, the last of which came in the 4-0 FA Cup replay defeat to Bradford in January.

        @TONY BLOCK28: He first came in under Kenny, and when Lomas signed him up most of us on here thought it was a great signing. He has been injury prone, but surely if we can get him back between now and May he'd be better than most of the recent signings.

      @SE17 Lion: I can't remember him being played out of position..?
      But I do remember him being injured for long periods....
      He probably will play better in a team that are in form and at the top of the league.... When he's fit of course...
      IMO this is what needs to be done now - moving on players that haven't been consistent, or who aren't in the managers plans - to get the funds together to buy or loan a striker... Still 1 or 2 more that might/should be moving on...
      Question marks over a few other players that haven't been seen for a while....

        @Luke ColdBlow10: I agree, injuries were his biggest problem, he is undoubtedly a technically gifted player but just couldn't seem to put in the performances we know he is capable of. Not sure if you blame the player or the manager for that.

          @glyngo: to be honest Glyngo, I don't know who is to blame, or if there is any blame at all. I genuinely can't remember a particular game where he was played out of position.. If he WAS played out of position you've got to take into account what is going on in the squad at the time, injuries, suspensions etc. From my memory of Chaplow I thought the majority of the time, he played well. He'd have a good couple of games - but then we'd find out he's picked up a knock again.. Do you think he was played out of position Glyngo?? Sometimes the finer details of all these matches become a bit of a blur!

        @Luke ColdBlow10: I did hear a couple of weeks ago that Chaplow and Shittu are out.

          @SE6: Shittu was 1 of the names that came to mind, think his knees might finally be telling him to quit.. Which is a shame IMO.
          Hoyte is an obvious one - didn't really want put his name alongside Chaplow out of respect for Chaplow!
          Others could be - Carlos and Bailey (unfortunately)..

        I wish they'd move Holloway on.

        @Lincolnshire Lion: midfield with 3 other midfielders doing their jobs without being chopped and changed weekly by a stupid clown of a manager
