Ipswich Town are keen to snap up West Bromwich Albion fullback Joe Mattock.

The Mirror says the England under-21 international can't make a move until he recovers from a thigh injury.

Albion manager Roberto Di Matteo is willing to loan out Mattock to gain more first-team experience.

He is third in the Albion pecking order behind Nicky Shorey and Marek Cech.

That competition and his injury problems have ensured that 20-year-old Mattock has not made a first-team appearance for Albion so far this season.
