Paul Jewell reveals that he is interested in signing free agent Jimmy Bullard for Ipswich Town.

Ipswich Town manager Paul Jewell has revealed that he is interested in taking free agent Jimmy Bullard back to Portman Road.

Hull City confirmed yesterday afternoon that they had terminated the 32-year-old's contract with the club after a two-year spell on Humberside.

Bullard spent the second half of last season on loan at Ipswich from the Tigers and Jewell has said that he is keen to see the midfielder return to Suffolk.

However, the Championship club face competition for his signature from some Premier League sides.

"[Bullard] says he's got a couple of Premier League teams that are showing interest," Jewell told a press conference.

"But I told him I am very keen and he said he will consider us.

"If he goes to a Premier League team we won't be able to compete. But we'd like to bring him here."

Bullard scored five times during his six-month spell with Ipswich.
