Walters back in blue

Jonathan Walters has joined Town on loan from Burnley until January 2018.

It is the forward’s second stint at Portman Road, having previously been on Blues’ books for three years up until 2010

Jonathan joined Town for the first time from Chester City, and scored his first goal in a 2-1 home win against QPR in March 2007.

He went on to net 30 league goals in 136 league appearances for Blues, including a hat-trick in a 6-0 win against Bristol City in November 2007.

The Republic of Ireland international moved to Stoke City in August 2010, and played more than 200 league matches for The Potters.

Following a seven-year spell with the Staffordshire outfit, he then moved to Burnley, where he made two starts.

Now the 34-year-old, who has earned more than 50 caps for his country, becomes Paul Hurst’s 11th addition as Blues boss.

Jonathan will wear the number 39 shirt for Town this term.
