Ipswich Town striker, Alan Lee, could be returning to Turf Moor in a £900,000 deal according to local reports.
Lee has been Ipswich's joint-second top-scorer in The Championship this season with 9 goals.
Vital Ipswich have this to say about the speculation
As much as Lee is wanted to stay, he has been in a dip of form recently and with a replacement in mind Jim Magilton might well let The Rep. of Ireland star leave Portman Road. However, Lee is known to be happy with life in East Anglia and is reportedly not looking to move away.
This could however be the signing that Owen Coyle has in mind as a replacement for Andy Gray now on his way to Charlton.
If so Ipswich must be keen to play Lee tomorrow if Coyle's statement below refers to the Ipswich star:
'Negotiations are already well underway to sign a replacement. We hoped to have somebody in for tomorrow (Saturday), but the club involved feel they need that player for tomorrow's game and we will pick that one up next week.'
According to one report he is also nursing an injury. BBC Sport state in relation to Ipswich's match tomorrow away to Blackpool that 'Alan Lee will play though an Achilles knock '
Seems odd to want to play an injured player so much
Lee has had the knack of scoring against us since he left the club over seven years ago.
He has netted five times for his various clubs in our games. His first club after the Clarets was Rotherham. originally on loan and he then played for Cardiff before moving to Ipswich.
During the close season, Lee signed a new contract with Ipswich Town until the summer of 2009 following considerable interest from Hull City.
Lee last played for the Clarets between July 1999 and November 2000 after signing from Aston Villa for £200,000.He scored one goal in four starts and 16 sub appearances.
