Jewell keen to keep loan duo

Collins and Andrews have impressed following their arrival from

Stoke and Blackburn respectively. Having settled quickly into the

Portman Road camp, Jewell is eager to bring them on board on a

permanent basis. He will explore the possibility of pushing through

such deals in January, while he will also look at a number of other

long-term targets as he attempts to push Ipswich into the

Championship promotion picture. Jewell feels it is important to

start planning for the future and has revealed that he will attempt

to sniff out a number of exciting youngsters, in much the same way

as Town were able to acquire Aaron Cresswell from Tranmere over the

summer. “I prefer to look long-term and we have a lot of short-term

deals at the minute,” he told his club’s official website. “Most of

the lads we have brought in on loan have done terrifically well and

we would like to make the likes of Danny Collins and Keith Andrews

permanent additions, if possible. “If we can make something happen

with the players and their clubs then it is something that we would

like to do. “But we also want to bring in a younger element to the

squad, the Cressy’s of this world, who show a real hunger and

desire to play and enjoy coming into training every day. “If you

can get the right mixture of young and experienced players then it

will be a terrific future for us.”
