New loan signing Zeki Fryers is hoping to help ‘massive club’ Ipswich Town back into the Premier League.

The former Manchester United, Standard Liege and Tottenham left-back joined the Blues from Crystal Palace moments before yesterday’s 5pm deadline in a double deal that included his Eagles team-mate Jonny Williams.

With Tyrone Mings suspended for the next two games – Bournemouth (h, Good Friday) and Huddersfield (a, Easter Monday) – the 6ft, athletic, 22-year-old could go straight into Mick Mccarthy’s staring line-up if Jonathan Parr is not fit.

Town are currently sixth in the Championship table with just eight points separating the top eight sides with seven games to go.

“I’m delighted to be here and I’m looking forward to the challenge ahead,” Fryers told the official club website.

“Ipswich is a massive club and the players are doing really well this season, looking to earn promotion to the Premier League.”

Fryers moved to Palace from White Hart Lane in a £5m deal last summer but has made just one League Cup start and one Premier League substitute appearance for the Eagles. He joined Championship side Rotherham on loan in January and 10 starts for the Millers before that deal expired earlier this month.

“I played against Ipswich earlier this season for Rotherham and hopefully now I can do my best wearing the Ipswich shirt,” he said.

“I’ve had a good grounding as a youngster with Spurs and Manchester United and obviously I’m a Palace player now, so hopefully I can use those experiences to help Ipswich get to the top flight. That’s the aim anyway.”
