Ipswich have confirmed their interest in Southampton midfielder Matt Oakley.

The 28-year-old has rejected the offer of a one-year deal to stay at St Mary's and now looks destined to leave the South Coast club.

Now Town manager Jim Magilton - who played with Oakley during his time with Southampton - wants to bring the player to East Anglia.

"I would love to get Matt here. He is exactly what we are looking for and I am definitely interested in him," said Magilton.

"As always, however, it is about what we can afford and at the moment he seems to be outside our price range. But I'll talk to him and see what we can do."
