Mick looking for Jordan to bring zip into Town

Mick McCarthy is hoping new arrival Jordan Graham could become a game changer for Town. 

The 18-year-old winger has joined Blues on loan from Aston Villa until the start of January and looks set to be included in the squad for Saturday’s trip to Charlton. 

“Jordan is an exciting winger who goes past people,” the Town boss told Ipswich Player. 

“He’s got good feet and he’s quick. He’s highly thought of at Aston Villa and he brings something different to the team. 

“We’ve got solid wide players who do a great job but have we got that blistering pace that can go outside, I’m not so sure. 

“We’re hoping Jordan will bring a bit of zip into the team and he could prove to be a game changer for us. 

“I remember when I was at Sunderland, I brought in Stuart Downing on loan from Middlesbrough. He’d been playing in their reserves at the time. He played six or seven games for us and took the league by storm. If Jordan has a similar impact, we will all be delighted.” 

Town will be backed by a travelling army of close on 2500 the Valley. Tickets have been selling through the week and will be available on the turnstiles on the day, priced at £26 adults; seniors/U21s £20; U18s £10 and U11s £5. 

Subscribers to Ipswich Player can watch the full interview with Mick later today.
