Ipswich Town midfielder Luke Hyam will sign a loan deal with Championship strugglers Rotherham United, before tomorrow’s 5pm deadline, we understand.

The combative 24-year-old central midfielder has not kicked a ball in anger for the Blues since last season’s 1-0 FA Cup home defeat to Southampton, when he picked up a knee injury.

The former Northgate High School pupil returned in pre-season but suffered a setback in his rehabilitation and underwent an operation to cure the problem.

Hyam made his comeback for the under-21s against QPR last week but Town manager Mick McCarthy is keen for the long-serving midfielder to get game time elsewhere to regain match sharpness.

The Millers are second from bottom in the Championship, having lost six of their last eight games, including a 5-2 home defeat against Ipswich almost three weeks ago.

Hyam, who has made 111 appearances for the Blues, scoring three goals, would add tenacity and energy to Neil Redfearn’s midfield and will reunited with former Town players Danny Collins, Paul Green and Frazer Richardson at the New York Stadium.

Rotherham host Bristol City in the league on Saturday, while Town kick-off at 12.30pm in their televised clash at The Valley, against Charlton Athletic.
