TYRONE Barnett has admitted he was surprised by the speed of his loan switch from Peterborough to Ipswich Town.
The 27-year-old striker was transfer-listed by Posh last week after a breach of club discipline.
Barnett was only told this morning about Ipswich’s interest but he didn’t need to think twice about the loan move, which runs until January 19.
Barnett, who is ineligible for Town’s home match against Peterborough on Saturday, said: “It’s been a difficult week, with what’s gone on so I’m looking at this as a new start and the chance to get back to playing football and enjoying my football as well.
“I’ve not done that as much as I would have liked this season. Ipswich have given me a chance to come here and play some games and hopefully score some goals and that’s what I’m looking to do.
“It’s a fantastic football club. I have some good memories of the place after scoring here last season in one of my first games. Now I want to score goals for the club and I can’t wait to get going.”
