He'll now be hoping to get some minutes under his belt at Stadium:MK, starting with this Saturday's fixture against Coventry City.

“It’s going to be a great experience for me. I know Ipswich has got a great history and the fanbase is really big as well.

Graham also revealed that former Norwich City manager Paul Lambert had some positive words to say about his former bitter rivals:

"The gaffer at Villa said it was the perfect place for me to come and play football.

"He said Ipswich is a good club, that they get good crowds and that the manager here is a top guy so I’m delighted to have a chance to play here.”
