IRELAND striker Jon Walters is set to return to his old club Ipswich Town on a loan move.

The 34-year-old is desperate for first team football after falling down the pecking order at Burnley and he is expected to drop down to the Championship on a half-season deal that will expire in January.

It would be good news for Martin O’Neill who still needs Walters and said earlier this week that he anticipated movement.

Meanwhile, Preston’s ex-Cork defender Kevin O’Connor has joined Crewe Alexandra on loan. Andy Boyle will also leave the club on loan this week, with Motherwell keen.
