Town Sign Leeds Defender - At Last

Town Sign Leeds Defender - At Last

Patrick Kisnorbo is set to make his Ipswich debut, some four years after the Blues made a move for him.

The Australian defender was close to joining Ipswich when Jim Magilton was manager but decided against it, although Gareth mcAuley joined instead.

"There was talk about me coming here before from Leicester, along with Gareth McAuley but it didn`t happen in the end," Kisnorbo told the Town website.

"It was unfortunate but that`s football. I`m glad to be here now though and there`s a great set-up here at Ipswich.

"That was then though and I`m here now and looking forward to doing well with my new team-mates.

"The first thing I said to the lads when I arrived was that there`s a good squad here and we can certainly keep moving forward. You know what it`s like in the Championship though, it`s really 'up and down`."

Kisnorbo, 31, has signed on an initial month`s loan from Leeds United and could make his Town bow against Aston Villa in the FA Cup on Saturday.

"It`s great to be here and it`s great to have the opportunity to play some football again," told the Club website.

"I haven`t been playing at Leeds and I`ve got the opportunity to come here now, so I just want to do well for the manager, the players and the fans.

"It`s been well documented that I`ve had a couple of injuries during my time at Leeds and it`s been hard, but I`m fully fit now and ready to show what I can do."
