Ipswich Town have signed Wolves winger Jordan Graham on a season-long loan – and the speedster immediately took aim at winning the East Anglian derby on Sunday.

The 23-year-old, who spent time on loan at Portman Road back in 2013 – making two appearances – becomes the tenth signing of the Paul Hurst era.

He has made 14 appearances for Wolves, while also spending time on loan with Oxford in 2015 and Championship play-off winners Fulham last season, scoring one goal.

Graham looks set to play on the opposite flank to the electric Gwion Edwards for the Blues, giving Town a proper pair of out-and-out wingers for the first time this season.

The England youth international has also played for Bradford in his short career so far.

He tweeted: “Round 2. Delighted to be back! What a fixture to start with on Sunday. Let’s get this season going!!”

Talking to the club website, Graham added: “I enjoyed being here before but I was very young and it was a big step up from Academy football to playing in the first-team.

“I’m bigger and stronger now and feel like I’m in good physical condition. I’m ready for the challenge here.

“When I got the go-ahead to say the deal was done I couldn’t get down here quick enough.

“I know Chambo [Luke Chambers] and Skusey [Cole Skuse] from my time here before and I know a lot of the other lads as well. “That always helps to settle in. It’s a big year for me and I’m here to make my mark. I want to score goals, I want to get as many assists as I can and I want to play my part in helping the team finish as high up the table as possible.

“I’m buzzing to be part of it here and it’s a great game to start with, the derby on Sunday.

“I got to know about the rivalry when I was here first time and how important the game is to the supporters. Ever since then I have watched the fixture on TV because it’s normally on live. Now I’m looking forward to be part of it.”

It is thought that Hurst still wants to sign a central defender before Friday’s loan deadline day, with the drawn out move for Blackpool’s Curtis Tilt getting closer to fruition.

Paul Hurst has been impressed with the form of goalkeeper Dean Gerken since the 33-year-old was brought into the side in place of Bartosz Bialkowski.

Ipswich Town manager Paul Hurst admits he’s frustrated at the repeated injury set-backs being suffered by creative midfield duo Emyr Huws and Teddy Bishop.

Ipswich Town owner Marcus Evans and manager Paul Hurst met on Tuesday prior to the Blues’ 1-1 draw with Brentford.

Ipswich Town’s potential move for free agent central defender James Collins is ‘dead and buried now’ according to manager Paul Hurst.

Ipswich Town manager Paul Hurst will speak to the media at 1.30pm ahead of the weekend visit of Bolton Wanderers.

Kayden Jackson is hoping his goal in Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw with Brentford is the first of many as he continues to get to grips with the challenge of the Championship.

Paul Hurst doesn’t expect midfielder Teddy Bishop to be out for too long despite picking up a hamstring injury but Jon Walters is now a doubt for Saturday’s game with Bolton.
