Former Town forward Jonathan Walters has returned to the club on a six month loan deal from Premier League side Burnley.
The Irish international who previously made 136 appearances for the Tractor Boys joins from Premier League side Burnley after only making three appearances since joining the Clarets from Stoke City in 2017.
Walters stated that there was interest from multiple clubs but it was a ‘no brainier’ to rejoin the Blues.
He also made his intentions for joining Ipswich very clear by saying ‘He (Hurst) knows I’m not coming here to take it easy’ and says he is still ‘hungry to do well’ even in the latter stages of his career.
Walters signing will provide the squad with a vast amount of experience and will allow for the younger forwards to learn off a veteran who has been doing it for years.
Many of the players in the squad have been down a similar career path to Walters as the Irishman came to Town from lower league Chester in 2007 which will also add to the advice he can give to the younger lads in the squad.
Walters is fit and available for Sunday’s game against rivals Norwich City so let’s Giles he get off the mark this weekend!
