Report: Owls ace Josh Windass lined up for Ipswich move despite fallout with new manager

According to Football Insider, Ipswich Town are keen to sign Sheffield Wednesday’s Josh Windass despite his former fallout with new Ipswich boss Paul Cook.

Cook originally signed Windass for Wigan Athletic for £2.5 million from Rangers.

But the attacker later joined the Owls for the second half of last season after citing a fallout with former Wigan boss Cook. The deal then became permanent in the summer.

Windass was questioned about his move to Wednesday, and he took to Twitter to explain how he didn’t see eye to eye with Cook during his time at the DW Stadium.

But now Football Insider claim the two could be reunited at Portman Road.

Cook took over the Ipswich hot-seat following Paul Lambert’s recent exit.

The 53-year-old has promotion experience with Wigan, and he has set his sights on guiding Ipswich to promotion back to the Championship as early as this season.

The Tractor Boys are said to want to sign Windass in the summer, and they could seek him for a potential bargain fee with the player’s contract expiring in 2022.

Windass has been a regular for Wednesday this season, starting 23 games and scoring six goals.

Newly-appointed Owls manager Darren Moore seems to rate the 27-year-old, starting him in his first two games as boss against Rotherham United and Reading.

But successive defeats leaves the Owls seven points from safety.

Windass is arguably among the club’s best players and dropping down to League One may prompt a summer sale with Ipswich looking to pass the Owls on their way up.
