Conor Chaplin has moved from Barnsley to League One club Ipswich Town.

The 24-year-old forward leaves for an undisclosed fee.

It follows yesterday's arrival of Obbi Oulare, with the Reds thought to be pursuing another striker as well.

Ipswich are managed by Paul Cook, who was in charge of Chaplin’s hometown club Portsmouth when the forward broke into the first team.

Chaplin, who signed from Coventry in 2019, has played 86 games for Barnsley with 17 goals.
He was one of the Reds’ star players in his first season at Oakwell, scoring 13 goals – including seven in seven games in late 2019 – before Barnsley stayed up in the final seconds.
But he has scored just six goals in his last 50 appearances, including four in 39 last season in which he was used increasingly sparingly under Valerien Ismael who left him on the bench in both legs of the play-off loss to Swansea City.
