Stephen Henderson to return to Ipswich Town on loan

IPSWICH Town are hoping they have beaten tonight’s 11pm transfer deadline to bring back Stephen Henderson on loan from West Ham.

The Irish keeper had reportedly been due to go to Blackburn Rovers in a swap deal for Paul Robinson, but that move fell through earlier today.

The deal had to be rushed through before tonight’s 11pm deadline as Football League rules state that clubs cannot take the same player on an ‘emergency’ loan twice in the same season.

Henderson, 24, made 16 appearances during his first spell at Town between October and the start of this month.

  • No Loans somehow manages to become EIGHT loans in three? months. If it wasn't so depressing and pointless, Henderson turning up yet again as a last resort would actually be quite funny. Are you sure No Loans' rumoured mega-bonus is not actually for getting Offshore Investment FC relegated? After all in just a few weeks he has morphed from a gruff, reasonablty sensible manager with a whiff of credibility into Paul Jewell with a Yorkshire accent.

  • Why? We need a striker and at least two midfielders. I said at the middle of last season that we would be relegated this season and the change of manager has not altered my opinion. Despite what he said when he arrived at ITFC, MM has gone the same route as PJ, LOANS LOANS LOANS. They never have worked and never will. Evans needs to loosen the purse strings as that is probably the main reason DJ didn't sign. I have supported ITFC since 1957 and in all that time have never seen my team in such a terrible state.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy says there is no point him even asking how much Leicester City would want for Tom Lawrence.

Ipswich Town have signed right-back Jordan Spence on a deal until the end of the season.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy says yesterday’s Scottish report claiming defender Christophe Berra could leave Portman Road and rejoin his old club Hearts this month is ‘just ridiculous’.

Tom Lawrence is in sensational form for Ipswich Town – but he is now the club’s greatest-ever loan player?

Could this be the turning point in Ipswich Town’s stuttering season?

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy has told new signing Kieffer Moore not to look at social media after completing a switch from non-league side Forest Green Rovers.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy has told supporters to enjoy in-form Leicester City loanee Tom Lawrence while they can after he once again proved to be the star of the show, scoring two goals in this afternoon’s entertaining 3-2 win against fellow Championship strugglers Blackburn Rovers at Portman Road.

Tom Lawrence scored yet another wonder goal and was once again the star of the show as Ipswich Town produced a bold, brave and entertaining display under pressure to beat fellow Championship strugglers Blackburn Rovers at Portman Road this afternoon – even so they didn’t make life easy for themselves.

With an FA Cup replay now added to an already packed fixture schedule, will Mick McCarthy prioritise this league game over the knock-out competition?
