Stead signs for Ipswich on loan

Jon Stead
Stead was capped 11 times at England U-21 level

Ipswich have signed Jon Stead on loan from Sheffield United until January.

Town have also agreed a fee with the Blades for the 25-year-old striker should the move become permanent.

The former England Under-21 international started his career at Huddersfield and scored 22 goals in 68 games before a Premier League move.

Blackburn Rovers signed him for 1.25m in 2004 and he scored eight goals in 42 games before moving on to Sunderland and then Sheffield United.

Stead spent 18 months at the Stadium of Light, before switching to Bramall Lane in a 750,000 deal in January 2007.

He scored five goals in 14 appearances for the Blades that season, but could not stop them being relegated from the Premier League.
