Winger delighted to join Blues and admits his excitement at working under Mick during Portman Road stay

Alex Henshall has told Ipswich Player of his ‘hunger’ to do well at Town, after joining on a youth loan from Manchester City.

The 20 year-old winger, who will wear the number 23 shirt for the Blues, has been brought in by boss Mick McCarthy from the Premier League giants until the end of the season and could be involved against Derby tomorrow night.

The former Swindon youngster is excited at the prospect of challenging himself at Championship level and is looking forward to getting his Town career underway.  

“Ipswich is a big Club and at this stage of my career, I thought it would be a great opportunity for me,” the England youth international exclusively told Ipswich Player.

“I’m looking forward to the experience and especially working under this gaffer, so I can’t wait to get started.

“I need regular football and the Championship is a great standard. I want to come in here, hopefully get some games under my belt and try and do well for the Club. 

“Ipswich are obviously pushing for promotion, so it’s a great time to come in. I really want to do
well for Ipswich and then we will take things from there.”
