Ipswich defender Pim Balkestein has joined League One club Brentford on a month's loan.

The 22-year-old has found first-team opportunities at Portman Road hard to come by in recent months, making just one appearance for the club since the start of September.

Balkenstein will join up with the League One side on Friday and is available to be named in the Bees' squad for the home match against Walsall.
