Ipswich Town are reportedly close to signing Brentford midfielder Jonathan Douglas.

It's understood that the 33-year-old is undergoing a medical at the club's Playford Road training centre this afternoon.

Douglas has fallen out of favour at Griffin Park since the arrival of new Bees boss Marinus Dijkhuizen.

The Irishman captained Brentford last season as they made The Championship play-offs, scoring 8 goals.

How many goals Douglas scored for Brentford last season.

Ironically, Douglas could make his Ipswich debut at Griffin Park on Saturday when Town get their season underway at Brentford.

Meanwhile, Ipswich youngster Matt Clarke has joined League Two side Portsmouth on loan until January.

"Giles and Larsen will be staying with us, they’ve both been offered deals.

I knew about Giles anyway from him playing against us over the years and I’ve always liked him as a player. He’s come in and done really well.

Larsen impressed me as soon as he walked through the door and trained with us. He’s definitely got something and I’m delighted to get both of them on board.”
