MORITZ Volz says he is exhausted, but excited after a whirlwind introduction to life at Ipswich Town.

The 25-year-old joined the Blues initially on loan from Fulham and made his debut at Watford a couple of days later, and has spent the past couple of weeks settling into Portman Road and meeting his new work colleagues.

Volz said; “Everything is very new to me at the moment. In the last week or so I've had 50-odd new people to get to know and that means as many names to memorize.

“So as much as it's an exciting time it's also very exhausting. But roll on the next game.”

That is against Reading on Saturday when Volz will make his home debut and that is something the German is relishing after a lengthy spell not being involved on match-days at Fulham.

Volz has said: “I played my first game for Ipswich ten days ago and, I've got to say, I'm really looking forward to being part of a dressing room again on Saturday afternoons rather than watching from the stands or sweating over results on the radio.

“I've got lots of games to look forward to - in the Championship they come thick and fast because there are so many teams in the League. I really like playing midweek as well as on Saturdays so I think it will suit me.”

The German has used the international break getting settled into Suffolk and recovering from the defeat at Watford.

He added: “My debut at Watford was a bit of a shock to the system.

“I played the full 90 minutes without having played competitive first team football in a while so my body took a bit longer to recover than usual. I'm lucky that we've got the international break as it gives me a bit more time to adjust to everything.”

Although David Wright played a starring role in the Town reserves' 3-3 draw at Colchester United on Tuesday afternoon, Volz is expected to keep the right back spot when the Royals visit.
