DARREN Currie's loan move to Coventry City has now been confirmed.
The midfielder, who will be 32 next week, is out of contract at the end of the season and is set to join the midlands club full-time if he impresses over the next six weeks.
Ipswich Town manager Jim Magilton said: “Darren is joining Coventry on loan until January and then we will see what develops from there.
“I have spoken to Darren throughout the season and I know that he wants to be
playing regular first-team football.

“I can fully understand that and wasn't any different as a player myself, but I told Darren that I couldn't guarantee him a place in the side.
“We have got players coming back from injury and Gary Roberts has come into the side and done well, so I told him that I wouldn't stand in his way if he wanted to go out on loan.”
Currie cost Town £250,000 from Brighton in December 2004. He has made 97 appearances and scored six gaols.
n Ipswich Town will possibly play their Club Colours Suffolk Premier Cup quarter-final tie against Ridgeons League Needham Market next week.
