New Ipswich Town signing Jordan Graham says that he "can't wait to get going" after penning a loan deal with the club until January.

The 18-year-old completed his move from Aston Villa earlier today.

Speaking to the club's official website, Graham couldn't hide his excitement at joining the Blues:

"I’ve played for the U21s at Villa for a couple of years but the move here is great for me, this is the challenge I want and I can’t wait to get going and show what I can do.

“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.”
