Ipswich Town have signed right-back James Bree on loan from fellow Championship club Aston Villa.

Bree becomes Town's seventh new arrival of a busy transfer window.

The 21-year-old joined Villa from Barnsley in 2017.

Bree could make his debut against Sheffield Wednesday at Portman Road on Saturday.

“It’s a great opportunity for me getting out on loan to a big club like this,” Bree said.

“I’ve been involved with Villa a bit this season but not as much as I would have liked so I really want to be playing regular first-team football. Hopefully I can get that here and get back to the level I want to be at.

“There are some really good lads here and from the performances I’ve seen I know that there is quality in this team – hopefully we can show that to stay up.

“It’s only been two weeks since I last played a proper game too. I’m feeling fit and sharp and I’m ready to get back out there.”
