Henderson's Blackburn Move Off
Thursday, 31st Jan 2013 15:26
The swap deal which would see former Blues loan keeper Stephen Henderson move from West Ham to Blackburn and ex-England man Paul Robinson go in the other direction is off - as things stand at present. Town boss Mick McCarthy is keen to add another keeper to his squad and last week said he could look to bring Henderson back to Portman Road for a second loan spell.
The Henderson-Robinson swap move is believed to have broken down as Blackburn have been unable to come to an agreement regarding the settlement of the remaining years of Robinson’s contract.
The likelihood of some deadline day business involving Town has reportedly increased this afternoon and if Henderson’s proposed move to Blackburn is now definitely over, then the Irishman could well return to Portman Road. However, these apparently dead moves do have a habit of being resuscitated on deadline day.
Town won’t necessarily be in a hurry to do deals today with the loan window opening next week and 93-day ‘emergency’ loans stretching until the end of the season on May 4th.
Former Blue Kelvin Davis, who is currently out of favour at Southampton, is believed to be viewed as a possible alternative to Henderson if the Irishman does move elsewhere.
Meanwhile, midfielder Josh Carson was spotted in town within the last hour, so currently wouldn’t appear to be on the verge of moving out on loan anywhere. The Northern Irishman spent two days training with Northampton Town last week.
Striker Nathan Ellington, who recently completed a loan spell at Scunthorpe, has also been spotted still in Ipswich.
Elsewhere, former Blues loanee Bilel Mohsni is training with Stevenage, although no deal has yet been done with Southend.

"Some people can f**k off," was mouthed right out of our very own small corner of Yorkshire. A sentiment as Yorkshire as the tea and a certain type of famously advertised bread.
So This is Me ... by RaymondovicBlue
OK, so this is me – 50 years old, living in Poole, Dorset and only getting to three games this season (hey, that’s 50% on last year!). Do I have a right to join in the discussions here, or should I keep quiet and listen to the experts?
Pig Tales - An Old Story Brought Bang Up to Date by roysboys
Once Upon a Time, not very long ago, not far away, there was country town with a problem, a big problem. The Town was called PigSwich and in the town there was a wonderful stydium in PigMan Road and no matter how well the locals built their stydium it kept getting battered by the local wolves who kicked balls at it and knocked it down.
Are English Football Clubs Becoming Just Global Consumer Brands (And What Are the Implications)? by AndrewPC
Back in 2010/11 I spent quite a bit of time in SE Asia, particularly Malaysia. As an expat, a retreat to the many available sports bars provided great access to live Premier League football in the evening (the time difference to the UK meant that games start to be shown around 22:00 hours) plus the not unpleasant possibility of imbibing some brews.
