Skysports.com understands that striker Kevin Lisbie is set to join newly-promoted Millwall on a season-long loan.
The Ipswich marksman spent last term on loan with Colchester and scored a healthy 13 League One goals for the Us.
Lisbie remains down Ipswich's pecking order and now Millwall boss Kenny Jackett is keen to add the pacey frontman to his squad.
Jackett knows Lisbie from their meetings last season as the 31-year-old scored for Colchester in their 2-1 defeat to the Lions.
Happy with options
Lisbie had been linked with a possible return to the Weston Homes Community Stadium, but manager John Ward is happy with his options.
Ward replaced Aidy Boothroyd, who joined Coventry in the summer, and does not believe he needs to strengthen unless someone leaves.
"I don't think that will happen at this moment in time because we have a good competitive squad already," he told skysports.com.
"Unless people move on and or other clubs come in and take players off us then we will probably go into the new season with what we have already got.
"I don't think that there will be any more new faces imminently because we have got a good sized squad and there is competition for places throughout the team.
"So, I think that we have done most of our business quite early, which is good because that means they are all together for pre-season and we can get our preparations done."
