SUNDERLAND cast-off Titus Bramble has been invited to train with Ipswich Town, raising the prospect that he could rejoin his first club.
The 31-year-old’s contract at Sunderland has not been renewed and the centre-half becomes a free agent on July 1.
He has offers under consideration from Major League Soccer in America but is keeping his options open as he looks to get himself ready for the new season.
Bramble has been troubled by knee problems in recent seasons which have restricted his ability to train, but he is not ready yet to hang up his boots.
Ipswich, managed by former Sunderland manager Mick McCarthy, would love to interest in him in a move back to Portman Road where his career began. But wages could be an issue and Ipswich might well want to offer him a “pay-as-you-play” deal, given Bramble’s injury concerns.
