Skysports.com understands Sunderland's Jack Colback is poised for a loan move away from the club.
A host of Championship teams are understood to have made enquiries about taking the highly-rated midfielder on loan.
Sunderland boss Steve Bruce has now given the 20-year-old the green light to head out to get some match action under his belt.
Ipswich are believed to be one of several Championship sides chasing Colback's signature with the player mulling over his options.
Colback enjoyed a successful spell at Portman Road last season, winning the club's player of the year award and Town boss Roy Keane is a huge admirer of the youngster.
