Ipswich striker Jon Stead is finally set to complete his move to City early next week.

Stead, 27, is thought be keen on a move to Bristol and had previously agreed personal terms last week.

But the deal has been held up due to the Tractor Boys being desperately short on strikers, leaving Stead to lead the line in all three of their Championship games so far.

Ipswich boss Roy Keane wants reinforcements lined up before sanctioning the move but it is believed a deal could go through sometime next week.

Former City boss Steve Coppell had a £225,000 bid accepted by Keane last month only for the move to collapse over wages.
