IPSWICH Town have confirmed they wanted to sign Liam Rosenior from Reading on a permanent deal.

The 25-year-old defender has joined the Blues on loan until the end of the season and trained with his new team-mates yesterday.

The former Fulham defender and England Under-21 international is happy with the loan move for now with a year left on his contract at the Madejski Stadium.

“I enjoyed my time at Reading, but they have had to move players on and trim their wage bill and I have no problem with that,” said Rosenior.

“The two clubs are at different stages at the moment, although and when I was told that Ipswich wanted me, the move appealed straightaway.
