Town make signing in time for Burnley visit

IPSWICH Town have signed 19-year-old left-sided midfielder Andros Townsend on a season-long loan from Tottenham.

The newcomer is set to be included in the Blues squad for Saturday’s home Championship game against Burnley having impressed manager Roy Keane in training today.

“We’ve been keeping tabs on Andros for a while and were given permission to speak to him on Tuesday by Spurs,” said Keane.

“Young players are our best bet of getting in loan players from the Premier League and there could be another loan signing by the weekend.

“Andros has a nice left foot and he will be in the squad for Saturday.”

The Town boss confirmed that Wigan had agreed a Town offer for striker Jason Scotland but that ‘there was still a lot of negotiating to be done’.

And Keane said there was a lot of work to be done in bringing Cardiff front man Ross McCormack to Portman Road.
