David Stockdale is expected to complete his loan move to Ipswich tomorrow – after problems with the paperwork scuppered the Championship club’s plan to announce the transfer today.

Ipswich had hoped to unveil the Fulham goalkeeper alongside new signing Jay Emmanuel-Thomas but the relevant documents for Stockdale’s loan have not been completed and so formal confirmation of his move will not arrive until tomorrow morning. Stockdale was reportedly at Portman Road today and Ipswich are hopeful that he will be available for their pre-season friendly at Colchester United tomorrow night.
