Ipswich not after former Sunderland defender Bramble

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy says he has not made a move for Titus Bramble.

The former Newcastle United and Wigan Athletic is a free agent after being released by Sunderland and has been linked with a return to Portman Road where he started his professional career.

But McCarthy insists there have been no talks with the 31-year old centre-back regarding a summer shift to Ipswich.

"It's never even crossed my mind," said McCarthy at a press conference.

"I think Titus Bramble will have other options, and probably Premier League options.

"I can't say no, though, can I? That would be a complete lie. What if he came down here and said, 'I love living down here, this is where I come from, what's your budget and what can you offer me? 500 quid, I love it here and I'll come and play'.

"I might consider it then under those circumstances, so if I actually said no I'd be lying.

"But have I spoken to him, his agent or considered it? No, I haven't."
