Ipswich Town are closing in on the signing of Colchester United striker Freddie Sears.

The former West Ham forward has been in prolific form in a struggling U's team this season, scoring 14 goals, and his contract is due to expire at the end of the current campaign.

As a result, Colchester have decided to cash in on their star man to avoid losing him on a free transfer.

If the deal is completed in time, Sears could feature in tomorrow's trip to Millwall.

Norwich City have seen their appeal against the red card shown to Jonny Howson in Saturday's win over Bournemouth rejected by the FA.

The midfielder was shown his marching orders for a challenge on Cherries striker Yann Kermorgant.

New Norwich manager Alex Neil called the decision "really harsh" after the game, but their appeal has been dismissed.

It means that Howson will now serve a three-match ban, ruling him out of the upcoming games against Cardiff City, Brentford and Birmingham City.
