Patterson returns home in loan deal
Monty Patterson is returning to New Zealand to join Wellington Phoenix on loan until May.
The 21-year-old Auckland-born striker progressed through the Town Academy but his only first-team appearance for Blues so far was in the Carabao Cup defeat at Crystal Palace in August.
Monty, who is out of contract at Portman Road at the end of this season, had two loan spells at Braintree Town last year.
Capped by New Zealand at senior level, he will join up with Wellington for their remaining fixtures in the Hyundai A-League.
