Fulham goalkeeper David Stockdale joins Ipswich on loan
Tuesday 26 July 2011
Goalkeeper David Stockdale has signed a four-year contract extension with Fulham and joined npower Championship club Ipswich on a season-long loan.
The 25-year-old, who started his career at York, joined the Cottagers from Darlington in 2008, and had loan stints with Rotherham, Leicester and Plymouth before making a good impression in the 2-2 draw against Manchester United in August 2010.
Last season, Stockdale stood in for number one Mark Schwarzer on 10 occasions, and was called into the England squad for the first time, and will now be hoping for regular football at Portman Road.
Stockdale is looking forward to life under manager Paul Jewell at Ipswich.
He told Ipswich's official website: "I had a great talk with the gaffer here and Ipswich Town is a big club so I was eager to come here.
"The manager told me about the quality of the signings he's made and where they're heading and everything he told me made me keen to join the club.
"Now I'm just looking forward to getting going and playing my part in what I hope will be a successful season for Ipswich."
