Ipswich Town midfielder Luke Hyam has joined Championship rivals Rotherham United on loan until January.

The 24-year-old has recently returned from a long-term injury, and will be hoping to get some first team action under his belt in Yorkshire.

Hyam will stay with the Millers until January 23, but Town have the option to recall him at 24 hours notice after 28 days of the loan.

“I spoke to my agent and the Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy and they told me that Rotherham were interested in taking me on loan

They asked me what I thought and I was keen to come straight away. I always look forward to a challenge. I’ve never moved previously. I’ve always played at Ipswich all my career but I just need to play some games now so this is a great opportunity.”

Ipswich Town have been dealt a blow with the news that their winger Ryan Fraser will be missing for at least the next couple of months with a knee injury.

The 21-year-old has made a big impact since joining on loan from Bournemouth in the summer but has now been ruled out after damaging his medial ligament while on international duty with Scotland under 21s.

“Ryan was training on the Friday when he suffered a non-contact injury.

He had a scan in Aberdeen and that showed a medial ligament problem. We took him to see a specialist in London yesterday and he has confirmed the injury.

You can never be sure about timings with an injury like Ryan’s but I would expect him to be out for at least two months.”
