Southampton goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski has joined Championship rivals Ipswich on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old Pole, who was first-choice goalkeeper at St Mary's for a period under former manager George Burley, has failed to dislodge Kelvin Davis this season and has decided to try his luck at Portman Road.

Saints boss Mark Wotte said: "We have a few goalkeepers in the squad at the moment with Kelvin Davis, Tommy Forecast, Michael Poke and Andrej Pernecky also in contention so I can't guarantee Bartosz any football at this moment."

He added: "He was getting a little impatient so to be fair to him it will be good for him to go somewhere he can be a little more involved - and if we need him we can recall him."
