Richard Stearman jumped at the chance to join Ipswich Town

NEW Ipswich Town loan signing Richard Stearman said he “jumped at the chance” to move to Portman Road, once he knew of the Blues’ interest.


The 25-year-old has penned a loan deal until the end of the season and is expected to be joined at the club by Colchester United midfielder, Anthony Wordsworth, in the next day or so.

“I have obviously worked under Mick and TC [Terry Connor] before and that was a big factor in me coming here,” Stearman said.

“Once I knew I was wanted down here at Portman Road, I jumped at it. I know a few of the lads already so it was nice to see a few familiar friendly faces this morning.

“I have not played as much football as I would have liked this season so the opportunity to come here and play games made it an easy decision.

“It’s frustrating when you work all week and then have to sit on the bench or in the stands on a Saturday afternoon.

“Footballers want to be out there playing and I’m no different. I’m looking forward to my time here and hopefully helping Ipswich get some points on the board.”



  • Of course he is, given the mess Wolves are in. Sacking McCarthy really worked out there, didn't it? Good luck to him.

  • Bad results for us last night. Right back there in a dogfight now. Wonder is it wise to sign somebody who hasn't been playing much football. Team are like strangers already. Showed that with the performances against Bristol City and Barnsley. 1 point from those two games wasn't good and now it's costing us. Squeeky b** time coming i'm afraid for the rest of the season.

  • As I tried saying before Iit is difficult to get too exited about another loanee - especially one from a club who are a mere point ahead of us in the relgation positions. This can only mean Wolves do not expect Stearman to make any great contribution or they would not sanction a move to one of their closest rivals. However if Wordsworth does sign this represents a welcome change for ITFC - to be actually signing a player - & one who is young & hungry & keen to establish himself in a higher division. That's enough in the way of exitement for today though - we all know who is the most likely to get actual playing time.

  • Yet another loan for No Loans who now has seven loans to his name. As always this move is doomed to failure for Offshore Investment FC & a 50:50 punt for the failed player. If he replicates the poor form shown at Wolves since he signed the ludicrously large salary still being paid by Wolves he will be a waste of space & move on. If he actually plays & does well - he will trouser a huge sign on fee from his next employer when he moves on.

  • Well of course he would what player would pass up the chance of a pay packet each week. He is not good enough for strugglers Wolverhampton so what makes clown mccarthy think a loser like him will benefit the town, ludicrous!!!
