Sunderland midfielder Jack Colback has re-joined npower Championship club Ipswich on an emergency loan deal.

The 20-year-old, who was the Player of the Year at Portman Road last season under former Black Cats boss Roy Keane, will stay in Suffolk until January.

Current Sunderland manager Steve Bruce said: "Jack did very well at Ipswich last season and really enjoyed his time there."

Bruce continued: "This will give him a great opportunity to return and get some additional first team experience under his belt, and we look forward to having him back in the new year."

Academy graduate Colback, who has made just two senior appearances for Sunderland, returned from Ipswich in the summer hoping to follow in the footsteps of Jordan Henderson, who has emerged from the ranks to establish himself in the first team.

However, chances have been few and far between with Bruce making full use of an extensive pool of experienced midfielders which was strengthened during the close-season by the arrivals of Cristian Riveros, Ahmed Elmohamady and Danny Welbeck.
