In-form Ipswich Town winger Tom Lawrence has been ruled out of the upcoming East Anglian derby after picking up his 10th booking of the season against Brighton last night.

The Welshman has been in inspired form for Town recently, scoring eight goals since the turn of the year.

However, he is now facing a two-match suspension - meaning he'll sit out Saturday's home clash with Leeds United, and the trip to face Norwich City on February 26.

Leicester City loanee Lawrence helped Ipswich claim an impressive point at second-placed Brighton last night, setting up Luke Chambers' goal in a 1-1 draw.

Norwich City have been dealt a blow of their own ahead of the derby, with the news that striker Nélson Oliveira is facing 4-6 weeks out with a foot injury.

Ipswich Town have beaten the deadline to sign Cardiff City midfielder Emyr Huws on loan until the end of the season.

The Welsh international is the second arrival of the day following the loan capture of Reading striker Dominic Samuel.

23-year-old Huws started his career at Manchester City before he was sold to Wigan Athletic in 2014.

He joined Cardiff in the summer but has failed to make an impact in his homeland.

The move to Ipswich was confirmed following their 3-0 defeat to Derby County in The Championship tonight.

Manager Mick McCarthy also admitted after the final whistle that Nottingham Forest failed in a bid to sign Ipswich captain Luke Chambers today.

Ipswich Town have completed the loan signing of powerful Reading striker Dominic Samuel.

The 22-year-old will spend the rest of the season at Portman Road after the Blues beat a number of other clubs to land him.

Samuel was on loan at neighbours Colchester in 2013, and has also had temporary spells at Gillingham and Coventry City.

He is Ipswich's sixth signing of the transfer window.

In League One, Portsmouth striker Michael Smith has joined Northampton Town on loan for the rest of the season but winger Alfie Potter has been allowed to leave.

31-year-old Chambers is out of contract in the summer and still hasn't agreed a new deal at Portman Road.

Chambers played more than 200 games for Forest earlier in his career before he joined Ipswich on a free transfer in 2012.

Ipswich Town have completed the signing of former Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor on a free transfer.

The 31-year-old has agreed an initial deal until the end of the season.

Taylor has been on trial with the club for the past week and has done enough to earn himself a short-term contract.

The experienced centre-back was most recently with American side Portland Timbers, but left by mutual consent last month.
