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.

Mohsni at Stevenage? I thought he would be better than that!

blueherts added 16:00 - Jan 31
Hey Stevenage Good side !!! Think Mohsni would suit them !! - he is League One at best
Interesting all these deals on/off , I know some on this board think we are slow , poor at getting deals done but today alot of these players have Brokers , managers , agents involved in the deal - gone are the days it seems of just one person involved . iT IS ALL ABOUT MONEY - Agents are now the good guys - its the middlemen 'brokers' causing the problems - Hold on - sounds abit like a Sports Hospitality business I know ??!!

Kelvin Davis would be an ok option. IMO.

What about Sorenson would now be third keeper at Stoke ?

Ipswichbusiness added 16:12 - Jan 31
I don't think we need a 'keeper, but of the names mentioned I prefer Kelvin Davis.

If Henderson comes he comes I am not losing sleep over this one. Would wlecome Davis back, was and still is a top class keeper.

Don't need to panic loan Hendo, we already have 2 who are equal to him in ability.

braintree_blue10 added 16:28 - Jan 31
Surely we have used all our loan options up - I thought we could only have 5 per match day, if we get another loanee, then one must get used to sitting in the stands or be on their way ?????

alfromcol added 16:35 - Jan 31
Murphy and NDaw don't count

francisb123 added 16:36 - Jan 31
they've had a lucky escape

Echo a few other comments on here. Don't rate him, was hoping he would go to Blackburn to be honest. Loach is as good so don't see the point or improvement

ChrisMakin2012 added 17:07 - Jan 31
Sign him up MM we need a better gk than Loach

BigAlsMate added 17:46 - Jan 31
Latest transfer news I have heard is that DJ is expected to sign for Blackburn today along with Jerome Thomas from WBA. Ah well :(
