Kuqi set for Ipswich loan return

Palace striker Kuqi looks set to return to Ipswich
Ipswich Town have agreed a deal with Championship rivals Crystal Palace to re-sign striker Shefki Kuqi on loan until the end of the season.

Kuqi, 31, was recently suspended for a fortnight and fined two weeks wages by Eagles boss Neil Warnock for making an obscene gesture to supporters.

The Finland international has been told he has no future at Selhurst Park.

Ipswich want a new striker because Jon Walters needs surgery after suffering a cartilage tear in his left knee.

The injury could sideline Ipswich's leading scorer for the rest of the season.

Kuqi scored 30 goals in 79 league appearances during his first spell in Suffolk before joining Blackburn in 2005.

He left Ewood Park after only one season when Palace paid 2.5m to take him to Selhurst Park.
