Ipswich Town manager Paul Jewell has confirmed Peterborough United have accepted a double offer for George Boyd and Paul Taylor.

Paul Taylor: Set to hold talks with Ipswich Town

Boyd and Taylor were placed on the transfer list by Peterborough at the end of last season after failing to agree new contracts at London Road.

Taylor was the subject of a failed bid from an unnamed club at the start of August, and the striker has regularly been linked with a move to the Premier League.

However, Taylor and winger Boyd now look set to remain in the Championship after Ipswich agreed a deal with Posh for a reported £1.75million.

Speaking after Ipswich's Capital One Cup defeat by Carlisle United on Tuesday, Jewell said in the East Anglian Daily Times: "They (Peterborough) have accepted an offer from us, we're meeting them tomorrow and hopefully we can move forward with that."

Jewell is anxious to improve his squad before Friday's deadline and is also hoping to sign Daryl Murphy, who had a loan spell at Ipswich from Celtic last season.

He added: "We need some height in the team and we're hoping that could happen too.

"We're hoping it will be a busy few days because we certainly need them to be."
