IPSWICH Town defender Pim Balkestein has this morning agreed to sign on loan for Brentford.

The Dutchman has been well down the pecking order at Ipswich, behind the likes of fellow centre-halves Gareth McAuley, Alex Bruce, Damien Delaney, Tommy Smith and Troy Brown.

Balkestein has signed a one-month loan package with the Bees, and will be looking to make an impression in League One.
