Blackburn's Andrews still waiting on Ipswich talks

Keith Andrews on loan at Ipswich from Blackburn Rovers, is set to return to Ewood Park after the Championship fixture with Nottingham Forest on 2 January. Town have yet to open talks about a permanent move, despite boss Paul Jewell stating he wants to sign the midfielder.

"I haven't been given the impression by the club that they want to do anything," Andrews told BBC Radio Suffolk.

"I've not spoken to Paul about it all," added the 31-year-old.

"A few weeks ago I told my agent to phone Ipswich out of courtesy because he was speaking to other clubs on my behalf," he said.

"Because I was enjoying it here I wanted him to touch base with Ipswich. From our point of view they haven't really given us the impression they want to do anything.

"Maybe they're planning something in the next few weeks, I'm not sure."

Andrews reiterated his desire to leave Rovers in the New Year, regardless of whether Steve Kean keeps hold of his job as manager of the beleaguered Premier League strugglers.

"I don't particularly like the way I was treated at the club," he said.

"Not just the manager, the club in general.

"I don't take any pleasure from seeing where they are because there are still some good people involved in that club.

"But I would imagine I will be moving somewhere in January."
