The Cardiff defender has a history of winning promotion, so he will certainly bring the right mentality to Ipswich.
Connolly can’t get near the Cardiff first-team and although injuries have hit at times, it’s hard to see how he plays at all this season.
Able to fill in across any position in the back four, the 30-year old could be vital to help Ipswich stop leaking goals.
Another that would have to join on loan given the cost, Colback would excel under McCarthy.
The tenacious midfielder has a very good all-round game for this level and has the quality to enhance the Ipswich midfield.
Once again, many clubs will be in for him, but if Colback can be tempted to Portman Road then Ipswich will be a lot stronger for it.
