TRANSFER LATEST: Daryl Murphy delighted at Ipswich Town return

NEW Ipswich Town striker Daryl Murphy has revealed his delight after returning to Portman Road on a season-long loan.

The Celtic star and Republic of Ireland international joins the club for a third loan spell and could be in contention for a place in Paul Jewell’s side for Saturday’s home game against Huddersfield.

“I’m delighted to be back at Ipswich,” Murphy, who was an unused sub for Celtic last night, in their Champions League victory against Helsingborgs

“All over the summer I was hoping something would get sorted for me to come back here and thankfully that has happened now.

“I’ve had a long summer break, around eight or nine weeks, but I’ve kept myself ticking over fitness wise and I’m feeling good.

“I’ll train with the boys tomorrow, get to know a few of the new faces in the camp and if the manager selects me for the weekend then I’ll be more than ready to get started straightaway.”
