The 19-year-old is behind Jordan Spence in the pecking order at Portman Road and Town are keen for him to get more first team football.

Ipswich Town striker Kieffer Moore has joined League One side Rotherham United on a season-long loan, and teammate Josh Emmanuel is expected to follow suit.

The pair featured in Saturday's 5-0 friendly win over Irish club Drogheda United, with Moore getting himself on the scoresheet, but both have been now been given the go ahead to complete temporary moves to Yorkshire.

Moore joined Town from Forest Green Rovers in January, while right-back Emmanuel signed a new contract at Portman Road last November.

He played against us last year and did well. We spoke to a few people about him and it was all good news. He has got some amazing attributes. He is really keen and ready to learn. He is very athletic and very strong and it is another striker to add to our attacking force.

Kieffer's arrival now gives us more options. I have always said the more strikers and the more competition I can get up front the better.

– Paul Warne, Rotherham United manager
