Ipswich Town have signed Patrick Kisnorbo on a month’s loan from Championship rivals Leeds United.
The Australian defender becomes Mick McCarthy’s first signing of the January transfer window and trained with his new team-mates for the first time this morning.
Kisnorbo began his career in Australia with South Melbourne, before moving to Scotland to team up with Hearts. He left Tynecastle in 2005 and moved south of the border to Leicester, linking up with his former manager Craig Levein.
The 31 year-old spent four years at the King Power Stadium, where he was a team-mate of former Town defender Gareth McAuley, before linking up with Leeds United on a free transfer.
The Australian, who has 18 international caps to his name, has so far turned out 57 times for Leeds.
