IRISH INTERNATIONAL KEITH Andrews has moved to Ipswich on loan until January, it has been confirmed.

The 30-year-old, who has 20 caps for Ireland, only made 5 appearances for Blackburn last year, mainly as a result of persistent injury problems, and found himself surplus to requirements following his recovery.

Speaking to the BBC, he said: “I didn’t want to be in an out of the team this year and I need to be playing football so I can feature for my country.”

Andrews, who was booed by a section of Blackburn supporters during his time there, seemingly aimed a parting shot at the club, saying:

“I’ve always conducted myself very well so it’s refreshing to come to a football club where you’re appreciated.”

It is the fourth time that the ex-Wolves man has been out on loan during his career, having previously had spells at Oxford, Stoke and Walsall.
