Skysports.com can confirm Ipswich are one of a number of clubs chasing Cardiff forward Ross McCormack.
Ipswich have held talks with the Bluebirds about signing McCormack with Jon Stead possibly going in the other direction.
A number of clubs are thought to be monitoring McCormack's situation with SPL giants Celtic believed to be one of the sides chasing the former Rangers and Motherwell ace
McCormack joined Cardiff for £125,000 in the summer of 2008 and enjoyed a superb debut season, netting 23 goals.
However, injuries disrupted his progress last season and when fit he played out wide rather than his preferred striking role.
McCormack is believed to be keen on a move away for a fresh challenge and the player's agent Willie McKay has confirmed he has held initial discussions with Ipswich about a possible deal.
"I have spoken to Ipswich chief executive Simon Clegg about Ross and we are now waiting for Ipswich to make a formal offer to Cardiff," McKay told skysports.com.
"Once that happens and an offer is accepted we will discuss personal terms with Ipswich.
"However, there are a four or five others clubs also chasing Ross and we will see what offers come in for him."
