Ipswich Town defender Freddie Veseli has joined League Two side Bury on loan for a month.

The Swiss-born 21-year-old – who can play at right-back, centre-back and central midfield – signed for Ipswich in the summer after being released by Manchester United, just 18 months after the Red Devils had themselves signed him from rivals Manchester City.

A regular for the Blues in pre-season, Veseli started the campaign behind Elliott Hewitt in the right-back pecking order while more recently he has found his chances in that role limited by Luke Chambers.

His sole first team appearance for the Blues was in the 2-0 League Cup defeat at Stevenage back in August.

Meanwhile, teenage right-back Elliott Hewitt has rejoined League One side Gillingham on loan having recovered from the ankle injury which interrupted his spell with the Gills at the start of the month.
