Crawley Town have signed Ipswich midfielder Andy Drury on a 93-day emergency loan deal and have completed a deal for free agent Claude Davis.

Central defender Davis, 32, has been without a club since being released by Crystal Palace this summer.

The Jamaican, who has won 64 caps for his country, has previously had spells with Sheffield United and Derby County.

Drury, 27, joined the Tractor Boys from Luton in January but has only made one appearance this season.

Reds boss Steve Evans told the club website: "We have signed a top class international defender in Claude.

"He is quick, which is what is needed at the heart of any defence."

As for the capture of Drury, he added: "We tried very hard back in January to sign Andy from Luton Town but it was not to be.

"He is a big strong lad with great ability and our supporters will take to him in a big way. He is a matchwinner and a great signing."
