Ipswich Town have decided to end the loan spell of Everton winger Conor Grant early.

The 21-year-old joined on a season-long loan in the summer transfer window but has failed to make an impact at Portman Road.

Instead of seeing out the rest of the campaign in Suffolk, he will instead return to Goodison Park to feature for the Premier League club's under 23s side.

Grant made seven appearances for Ipswich.

I felt bad for Conor because he has come to us to play games and although he has had a few appearances, his time on the pitch has been limited.

The reality is that he was here to develop his game and that wasn’t happening because he wasn’t getting the time on the pitch he needs at his age.

MK Dons' bid to appoint Steven Gerrard as their new manager may have hit a potential stumbling block, after reports emerged that Italian giants Inter Milan have also made contact with the 36-year-old.

Early talks are understood to have taken place between the former Liverpool midfielder and the Dons who are on the lookout for a new boss after parting company with Karl Robinson last month.

However, according to The Independent, Inter are keen to sign him on a six-month contract - leaving Gerrard with a decision to make on whether he wants to continue his playing career.

Inter are currently mid-table in Serie A after a disappointing start to the season and recently sacked their manager Frank De Boer.

Gerrard is currently in the process of gaining his Uefa A coaching licence.
