Dougie Freedman: Understood to be in the frame for the Ipswich job
Sky Sports understands Ipswich Town have made contact with Dougie Freedman over their managerial role.
Ipswich are looking for a new boss after parting company with Paul Jewell earlier on Wednesday, with the club currently bottom of the Championship table.
Chief executive Simon Clegg has revealed he and owner Marcus Evans began the process of identifying possible successors to outgoing manager Paul Jewell 'a number of weeks' ago, and says there are various candidates in the frame.
It is understood that Freedman has now been contacted about the possibility of replacing Jewell, which would make for a sudden turn of events as he appeared set to join Bolton earlier in the week.
Crystal Palace released a statement on Tuesday saying that their manager had taken charge of the Trotters, with Lennie Lawrence and Curtis Fleming taking the helm temporarily at Selhurst Park.
However, Bolton revealed after their match against Wolves that talks were still ongoing and the appointment was not yet finalised, leaving Freedman's future uncertain.
