JORDAN Rhodes and Jaime Peters have both gone out on loan.

Rhodes has joined Brentford, while Peters has gone to Gillingham, both on initial one-month deals.

The Ipswich Town duo impressed enough in the 1-0 reserve defeat by Northampton to be snapped up and it is important for both players' development that they are playing regular league football.

With Billy Clarke today officially starting his loan spell at Northampton, and Shane Supple told he can go out on a temporary basis, manager Jim Magilton is slowly trimming his squad.

He said: “It is important for them to be playing first team football rather than reserve team football here.

“They need to be developing and gaining experience in matches.”

Rhodes enjoyed a successful loan spell at Rochdale earlier this season, scoring for them, while Peters had a lengthy spell with Yeovil last year with the Glovers keen to take him full time.

Brentford boss Andy Scott was impressed with Dean Bowditch during his three-month loan spell but moved for Rhodes after getting the impression Bowditch was not available.

After meeting with Magilton to talk about his future, Supple has been told he can go out and a club is being sought for him right now, and a replacement keeper lined up by Town.
