Best interests of all says Town boss as he also reiterates ambitions to add to squad

Paul Hurst said he left Martyn Waghorn on the bench for the friendly against West Ham in the best interests of all concerned.

The striker didn’t feature for the second successive game amid speculation over his future.

“There is no getting away from the fact that there is a lot of talk about Waggy,” the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich after Blues finished the pre-season campaign with a 2-1 defeat against the Hammers in front of 15,000 at Portman Road.

“I just think it was the best decision for everyone concerned that he didn’t play today.

“We will see what the next week or so brings. Will he be here for the Blackburn game next week? Honestly I’m not sure.”

Paul reiterated that Town have bids in for players as he looks to strengthen his squad before the Championship opener against Rovers next weekend.

“We are trying very hard to add to the squad with players we feel can really contribute,” added the boss.

“We have a number of bids in and hopefully we will have some news before the Blackburn game.”
