Alex Henshall

Ipswich Town have signed Manchester City left winger Alex Henshall on a youth loan until the end of the season after a successful trial period.

The 20-year-old is yet to feature for the Premier League club since signing from Swindon Town in 2010.

Henshall spent periods on loan at League Two sides Bristol Rovers and Chesterfield last year.

The former England Under-17 international is eligible for Ipswich's home game with Derby County on Tuesday.

Henshall has not played a competitive match since scoring his first senior goal in the Pirates' 2-1 defeat at Accrington last October.
