Ipswich boss Roy Keane has spoken of his delight after securing the loan signings of David Healy and Daryl Murphy before Monday's transfer deadline.

Keane raided former club Sunderland to bring the forward duo to Portman Road until the end of the season and could make their debuts against Middlesbrough at the weekend.

"I have worked with both David and Daryl before and I'm delighted to have them at the club," Keane told Town's official website. "Both lads were keen to come, which was obviously a big factor."

He added: "Murphy gives us options. He can play on the left but I think we will get the best out of him up front.

"David has a fantastic goals record at international level. It didn't happen at Sunderland for him but that's football and he didn't get a run of games up there, with the competition for places they have.

"We will gauge their fitness with Saturday in mind but they are both keen to be involved and know the demands I will put on them."
