Hurst set for Ipswich
Shrewsbury boss Paul Hurst is set to become Ipswich’s new manager after the two clubs agreed a compensation package.
The Tractor Boys have been looking for a replacement for Mick McCarthy since April and have settled on Hurst, who will now discuss personal terms with the Sky Bet Championship club.
A statement on Ipswich’s Twitter feed read: “#itfc can confirm that we have been given permission to speak to shrewsweb manager Paul Hurst and compensation has also been agreed with the League One club.”
Hurst has done an impressive job for the Shrews, saving them from League One relegation last season before mounting an unlikely promotion challenge this time around.
