Ipswich Town have signed Wolves winger Jordan Graham on a season-long loan – and the speedster immediately took aim at winning the East Anglian derby on Sunday.

The 23-year-old, who spent time on loan at Portman Road back in 2013 – making two appearances – becomes the tenth signing of the Paul Hurst era.

He has made 14 appearances for Wolves, while also spending time on loan with Oxford in 2015 and Championship play-off winners Fulham last season, scoring one goal.

Graham looks set to play on the opposite flank to the electric Gwion Edwards for the Blues, giving Town a proper pair of out-and-out wingers for the first time this season.

The England youth international has also played for Bradford in his short career so far.

He tweeted: “Round 2. Delighted to be back! What a fixture to start with on Sunday. Let’s get this season going!!”

Talking to the club website, Graham added: “I enjoyed being here before but I was very young and it was a big step up from Academy football to playing in the first-team.

“I’m bigger and stronger now and feel like I’m in good physical condition. I’m ready for the challenge here.

“When I got the go-ahead to say the deal was done I couldn’t get down here quick enough.

“I know Chambo [Luke Chambers] and Skusey [Cole Skuse] from my time here before and I know a lot of the other lads as well. “That always helps to settle in. It’s a big year for me and I’m here to make my mark. I want to score goals, I want to get as many assists as I can and I want to play my part in helping the team finish as high up the table as possible.

“I’m buzzing to be part of it here and it’s a great game to start with, the derby on Sunday.

“I got to know about the rivalry when I was here first time and how important the game is to the supporters. Ever since then I have watched the fixture on TV because it’s normally on live. Now I’m looking forward to be part of it.”

It is thought that Hurst still wants to sign a central defender before Friday’s loan deadline day, with the drawn out move for Blackpool’s Curtis Tilt getting closer to fruition.
