Lambert: Judge wants to leave
Ipswich Town boss Paul Lambert has revealed Alan Judge has told him he’d like to speak to QPR.
Town have turned down two bids from QPR for the Irish international, latter of which is thought to be in the region of £450,000.
“Judgey has spoken to me and I think he would like to go,” Lambert said.
“It’s his prerogative to say what he wants to do, but I don’t know the state of where that’s at.
“He’s spoken to me and I guess it’s over to Judgey to see what he wants to do. I think he wants to go.”
Lambert was asked if the chance of playing in London would appeal to Judge:
“It’s only a couple of hours away, it’s not to the moon and back, but I don’t know where it’s at.
With the window shutting in a few weeks time (August 8th) would Lambert be concerned of Judge giving his all if he was still at Town:
“He’ll have to be, there’s no two ways about it,” he said.
“If you’re here you have to play your absolute heart out for the club because we have a big fanbase behind us.
“I think he’s got to be clear in his own head. At the minute I think he’s up and down with it.
“But I think he’s got to be clear in his own head. I think at the minute he’s up and down with it. He’s done well for us last season. I’ve had chats with him and he’s indicated that he’d like the opportunity.”
