IPSWICH boss Mick McCarthy has been given a £150,000 trans­fer boost af­ter chief exec Simon Clegg stepped down.

Owner Mar­cus Evans is tak­ing a more hands-on role at Port­man Road and can do with­out the former Bri­tish Olympic As­so­ci­a­tion chief.

Clegg’s £150,000 salary will go straight into the pool of cash for McCarthy to strengthen his strug­gling side.

Clegg said: “At the top of our agenda has been pro­tect­ing the play­ing bud­get. This has led me to the de­ci­sion that now is the right time to seek a new chal­lenge.”
