The versatile midfielder has been a regular among the first-team squad this season, with 14 appearances under his belt.

He had a run of seven consecutive starts in the Championship between October and December.

However, he has since dropped out of the starting XI in recent weeks.

Bakinson is contracted at Ashton Gate until 2023, having agreed his current terms in May 2019.

The Robins triggered a one-year extension clause in his contract back in November.

The Luton Town academy graduate has played 54 times for Bristol City to date, with five goals under his belt.

The midfielder has also spent time out on loan in League Two with Plymouth Argyle and Newport County.

He looks set to join an Ipswich Town side currently sitting 11th in League One.

As first revealed by Football Insider, the Tractor Boys have recently completed the permanent signing of Christopher Walton from Brighton.

The goalkeeper has been Ipswich’s only signing so far during the winter window.
