The former Queens Park Rangers centre-forward was among five players released earlier this month as Chris Wilder prepares for Premier League football next season.

Although a number of Championship and League One sides have expressed an interest in Washington, Portman Road could be his next destination after manager Paul Lambert made the 26-year-old one of Town's top targets.

Although Washington failed to score for United after joining them in August, he produced a series of influential performances as Wilder's side established themselves as top two contenders midway through the campaign.

Paul Coutts, Martin Cranie, Caolan Lavery and Daniel Lafferty were also told their contracts will not be renewed when they expire later this summer.
