Defender looking to make a name for himself and can't wait to get started at Town

Reece Brown admits he is delighted to be joining Town and revealed that the deal to bring him to Portman Road was ‘a bit of a whirlwind’.

The defender has agreed a deal which will see him finish the season with Blues on loan from Premier League giants Manchester United and is hoping a few a familiar faces in the Town dressing-room will help him settle in quickly to his new surroundings.

“The deal got done pretty quickly and it was a bit of a whirlwind really,” the 21 year-old told the Club website.

“I first heard of the interest about two days ago and I didn’t really know too much about it to be honest. I just came in from training at United and then I spoke to the gaffer (Sir Alex), who told me I was going down to Ipswich for a few months and things went from there really.

“There’s a few of the lads here that I know already. I know David (McGoldrick) from playing with him at Coventry earlier this season and I also know Frank Nouble from playing for England youth with him.

“I obviously know Lee Martin as well, from when he was at United, so it will be good to see a few familiar faces and hopefully that will help me to settle in.”

The defender is the younger brother of Sunderland defender Wes Brown, with Reece admitting that his sibling does regularly report back to him after games with bits of advice.

However Reece is looking to make a name for himself and hoping to be a hit at Portman Road.

"My brother keeps an eye on how I'm doing and it's good to know that someone with his experience is looking out for me," added Reece.

"He's had a great career and he will often ask for the DVDs of my games to see where I went right and wrong in my performances.

"It's great to have him offering bits of advice here and there. People often compare me to my brother but I think we are quite individual and I want to be known for Reece, not Wes."
