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.

Play Our Guys Or Take on Loan? by Mullet
I first noticed Bersant Celina a couple of seasons ago, he is one of a handful of names which get mentioned regularly by various fan and sportswriter accounts on Twitter and in the Manchester Evening News. He is the sort of talent that locals up here hold in high regard but haven’t seen too much of.
A Play-Off Tale from the Northlands by Von_Lager
It’s been an interesting 10 days for me reading the articles on 29th May 2017 vs 2000 and Huddersfield or Blackburn?. Interesting for me as I was at Wembley for both the 2000 and 2017 finals and both times supported the winning teams.
You Little... Garner? by Mullet
The slow crystallisation of next year’s squad began with first the departures of several key figures spanning the reign of McCarthy, to make way for the securing of fresh faces. Typically, it was the familiar look of Jordan Spence which came first and unsurprisingly as Town look to bounce back from a dismal season.
Desperate Data – the Extreme Numbers That Defined Ipswich Town’s Dismal Season by realprojection
Think Ipswich Town’s 2016/17 Championship record redefined tedium? Think again. Despite a low mid-table finish, set against a background of increasing supporter discontent at insipid management and directionless ownership – Town actually topped (or tailed) the league for many key attributes. Not the characteristics of a mundane team.
