33-year-old Bullard has been ordered to stay away from the club while Ipswich discusses the options about the midfielder’s future.
Another Ipswich squad member who may also be in trouble is their leading goal scorer, Michael Chopra. Chopra and Bullard decided to cut short a team bonding session which was being held in London and headed up to Newcastle for a big night on the town.
They were supposedly spotted in night clubs around Newcastle in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Jimmy Bullard already has a tense relationship with manager Paul Jewell after falling out last year in a dispute about Bullard’s living arrangements. Bullard refused to move from his Cobham, Surrey residence to live closer to the club and it lost him his place in the starting XI.
Bullard is also thought of as taking a relaxed attitude to training and constantly bragging about his wages.
Paul Jewell is set to make a statement about the issue after Ipswich Town’s game against Bristol City this weekend.
