Ipswich ditch Verheyen deal

Ipswich Town have pulled out of a proposed 1.7m move for Belgium international Gert Verheyen.

The 30-year-old Bruges midfielder had been expected to sign for the Suffolk club, but the deal has fallen through after Belgian club Bruges increased their valuation of the player.

Ipswich chairman David Sheepshanks said in a club statement: "We have to respect the views of Bruges who are unwilling sellers, however they are demanding what we consider to be an unrealistic fee that prohibits further discussions.

"It remains to be seen whether anyone will actually pay it considering the player's age and the current transfer market uncertainty."

Verheyen, who appeared in all three of Belgium's Euro 2000 fixtures, is in the Belgium squad to face Latvia in a World Cup qualifier in Riga on Saturday.
