Ipswich have signed Reading defender Liam Rosenior on loan until the end of the season.

The 25-year-old right-back had started every Championship game for the Royals this season but will now move to Portman Road as new Royals boss Brendan Rodgers continues to revamp his squad.

Rodgers moved for Chelsea full-back Shaun Cummings before the transfer deadline to replace Rosenior and admits that he is looking to the future.

Rodgers said: "Liam is in the final year of his contract and I obviously have to look beyond this season and construct a team for the future.

"Liam has been steady for us this season and hasn't been one ounce of a problem but I have brought Shaun Cummings here at 20 years of age who can help us go forward."
