Ipswich set to sign Verheyen

Ipswich Town are expected to sign Belgian international winger Gert Verheyen from Club Bruges for a fee of about 1.8m.

Verheyen, 30, was a regular for Belgium during Euro 2000 and is the second top scorer in the Belgian league this season with nine goals.

He said: "It's the last chance of my career. I've received offers before, but nothing as concrete as this.

"The salary would be two or three times what I get at the moment - it's really tempting."

Bruges sold right-back Eric Deflandre to Lyon during the summer and striker Khalilou Fadiga to Auxerre two weeks into the new season and Verheyen said he hoped the club would let him leave too.

"I'd be really disappointed if Bruges vetoed the move after letting so many other players go before me," he said.
