Toon boss rejects Wickham link

Wickham is one of the hottest properties outside the Premier League

after bursting onto the scene at Portman Road. A whole host of

clubs have been credited with an interest in Wickham, who has been

tipped for the top since breaking into Roy Keane’s side. Hughton

was an interested observer for Ipswich’s 1-1 draw at Scunthorpe on

Saturday fuelling rumours of a move for Wickham. However, the

Magpies boss has moved quickly to dispel the speculation saying

Wickham was not the reason for his visit to Glanford Park. “There

is absolutely nothing in it,” Hughton told the Evening Chronicle “I

went to Scunthorpe on Saturday because it was one of the closest

places to get to after training.”
