Kisnorbo Staying for the Rest of the Season
Tuesday, 29th Jan 2013 14:12
Central defender Patrick Kisnorbo has extended his loan with the Blues from Leeds until the end of the season. The 31-year-old Australian international’s initial month at Portman Road came to an end today.
Manager Mick McCarthy said on Friday that the plan had always been to extend his spell as long as all parties were happy to do so and the Blues boss is delighted that that is the case: “Patrick wanted to stay with us, we wanted him to stay, so obviously we’re pleased it’s been agreed.”
Kisnorbo, whose only appearance so far came in the FA Cup defeat at Aston Villa, is out of contract at Elland Road at the end of the season.
Elsewhere, ex-Town reserves winger Devann Yao is on trial at Birmingham City. The American, who spent a short time with the Blues during the 2009/10 season, was most recently with Belgian side Royal Boussu Dour Borinage.
Meanwhile, former Blues striker Dean Bowditch, now with the MK Dons, is said to be a target of Norwich City. The former Town academy scholar, who was released in the summer of 2009, is out of contract in the summer.

Defence looking solid now. Bowditch to Norwich CANNOT happen!

Adds competition I suppose, but more loans. I simply do not agree with this strategy.

good player but could limit stearmans chances in the team. also i want hewitt to get a chance rather than having stearman fill in there.

we seem sorted at the back ..now for a couple of wingers or are we hoping for 0-0 most weeks?

Dean Bowditch to Scum?! To be honest i'd take him back on a free transfer in the summer! Glad we have a bit of cover in defence now and with Wordsworth coming i think we'll have a decent enough squad to do better than avoid relegation!

Pleased about that. Good cover (did well at the Villa game).

Would like to see Hewitt given a bit of time on the wing. Could be interesting.Kisnorbo could be a good free signing at the end of the season if he proves his worth in the next few months.

If Aaron Mclean is moaning about shopping in Ipswich then somehow i don't think it will be good enough for Mrs Miserable Spice!

Bowditch to Naaaarwich! Cant wait to see the 'inbred boys' reaction to that one!
That should be a good test of his character, getting booed by his own fans before he has even kicked a ball!!

We needed experienced cover in the centre of defence and he has proved to be it. My concern when he was signed originally was that he seemed a bit injury prone, but (touch wood) that has proved to be ill-founded. Not sure why we need both him and Stearman though.

Sensible to get the defensive cover in on loan to tie us over until the summer when (hopefully) MM will have money to spend, a clearer idea of who's what and who's not in the squad, and possibly turn some signings into permaments.

Squad still a bit light in places so Kisnorbo extension should help with backup in our constant fight to stay in this division.Hope for a quick wideman,another gk and one other although dont think it will be Becks but Ipswich has a good recent record of signing 'mature' players (lol).However if Tony Mowbray; who most of us consider to be a good Manager;thinks there is still something left in Keiron,why not give him a try on a pay as you play basis until the end of season.This will at least stop him scoring against us on Saturday for Boro!

Would not worry me a bit if Bowditch goes to Norwich as in my opinion he will be nowhere near good enough. He is a touch player not suited to the hurly burly of the Premiership. Good luck to the lad if he does go he will need it. Hope we can keep Kisnorbo as he is handy to have around. Need a goalkeeper and some pace on the flanks now but suspect thats being greedy.

9 goals and 11 assists for Bowditch this season. Its the 11 assists that we need and I guess Norwich are looking at that. We have nobody that can create a goal chance for us at at the moment. We will come out on top eventually though, we always do!
