Ipswich defender set for Brentford loan

Published Add your comment

Ipswich manager Roy Keane has confirmed that defender Pim Balkestein could be returning to Brentford.

The Dutchman spent six weeks with the League One side at the end of 2009 and could return to Griffin Park after Bees boss Andy Scott made a move.

Keane said: "I haven't spoken to Pim yet. Brentford have only just got in touch over the last few minutes. It would be a loan deal, but with a view to a permanent move."

Keane added: "We have good numbers in his position, since Tommy Smith came back from Brentford. Tommy is going nowhere."
