Ipswich manager McCarthy said: “He’s coming to train on Monday. If he’s fit he’ll be a good asset.

"He’s been out in America playing and we’ll have a look at him next week. He was a very good player for Newcastle.”

Taylor left boyhood club Newcastle at the end of last season.

The former England Under-21 international made 268 appearances for United, who offered him a deal to stay at St James's Park last summer.

Taylor's final game came in the season-ending 5-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur.
