Henderson joins Town

West Ham United reserve goalkeeper Stephen Henderson has joined Championship side Ipswich Town on loan.

The former Portsmouth goalkeeper moved to West Ham on a permanent basis in the summer but has struggled to impress in his pre-season and Cup outings thus far.

Ipswich - who have also recently signed former Hammer Nigel Reo-Coker and summer triallist Bilel Moshni - have taken the 24-year-old Irish goalkeeper on a short-term basis.

Henderson becomes Town's eighth loan signing of the season and will compete with Scott Loach and Arran Lee-Barrett for a place in Pau lJewell's starting eleven.

West Ham's third-choice goalkeeper - Swiss stopper Raphael Spiegel - will deputise for Henderson in his absence.

''I've got a lot of time for Ipswich, a proper footballing club, but you have to laugh...

"It's the right club at the right time for me and everything has fallen into place" sez Big-time Charlie, I'm sorry, I mean Mr Reo-Coker. You mean, Nigel, you haven't got a club and they're willing to offer you a contract.

You were a decent player for us, but your ego was greater than your ability. That you are now, out of contract, signing for a club in the lower half of the Championship speaks volumes...''
