Fresh uncertainty surrounds the future of Ipswich boss Roy Keane.

Tabloid reports have suggested former Blues coach and skipper Tony Mowbray and ex-Burnley boss Steve Cotterill are being lined up to replace him.

According to the story, Town have made discreet enquiries regarding Mowbray and Cotterill’s interest in taking over at Portman Road.

Keane’s future was in doubt for much of last season, due to his side’s inconsistent form in the Championship.

Chief executive Simon Clegg dismissed speculation his sacking was imminent when he faced the media in March.

However, it seems highly unlikely a change of manager is on the cards.

If Keane was going to leave, it seems far more likely something would have happened before now, as soon as the campaign finished.

Mowbray was sacked by Celtic in March after an unsuccessful season at Parkhead.
