Andrews seals loan move

IRELAND midfielder Keith Andrews has completed a six-month loan move to Ipswich after admitting his face no longer fits at Blackburn.

The 30-year-old Dubliner fell out of favour at Ewood Park under Steve Kean and has been at Portman Road since Tuesday awaiting the relevant paperwork to be completed for his move to go through.

And after the frustration of losing his place at Blackburn, the Irish international is hoping to kick-start his career by dropping down a division until January.

"It is one of those things," he said. "Football is a horrible business at times and if your face doesn't fit, you have to move on.

"Thankfully, I am at a place now where my face is fitting and I hope to fit in very well."

"Blackburn told me I could go out on loan and my agent started chatting to a few clubs, but it has been a little drawn-out and not as easy as we all would have liked."
