Blackburn Rovers have allowed striker Francis Jeffers to join Ipswich Town on a month loan.
The former Everton, Arsenal, Charlton Athletic and England International arrived at Ewood Park on a free transfer in the summer having been released by Charlton at the end of the 2005-2006 campaign with hopes that maybe, just maybe Mark Hughes may be able to bring out the best of Jeffers.
However after struggling to force himself into regular contention he has seen little first team football again this term, playing only fifteen times starting only three games scoring the solitary goal, a penalty in the UEFA Cup. In fairness to Jeffers he has been troubled with a groin injury so this hasn't helped.
So in order to play some first team football Jeffers has been allowed to join Championship outfit Ipswich on a month's loan.
What will come of this loan I am not sure, if an extension is possible I would not be in the least bit surprised to see him stay at Portman Road for longer; maybe even permanently? On the other hand regular first team football and a run of games could be exactly what he needs so if he gets this under Jim Magilton he may start finding the net to boost his confidence then who knows what might happen?
Could we still see a return of the "fox in the box", does Jeffers still have a future at Ewood or will he merely play out the season before being released in the summer? Have your say below…
