Ipswich are close to finalising a season-long loan deal for teenage Arsenal defender Justin Hoyte.
Hoyte has won two England Under-21 caps
The 19-year-old, who can play at full-back or in central defence, has won two England Under-21 caps.
He has made four senior appearances for the Gunners but Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will allow him to leave to gain more senior experience.
It is understood negotiations over his move to Town are at an advanced stage and he is set to sign this week.
