Liam Feeney has expressed a desire to earn a permanent move to Ipswich Town, after joining the club on loan for the rest of the season.

Feeney has been a regular part of the Bolton team throughout the campaign, making 41 appearances in all competitions, but has become a victim of cost-cutting measures by new owner Dean Holdsworth.

With relegation to League One looming, Feeney, who is out of contract in the summer, has been cut from the wage bill at Macron Stadium as Holdsworth looks to restructure financial outgoings at the club.

Feeney will go straight into the Ipswich squad for Saturday's game against Rotherham United and he admits to being excited at the prospect of helping the Tractor Boys push for a place in the play-offs.

"I'm really excited and I'm glad it's done now," Feeney told Ipswich's official club website.

"Coming from the situation [at Bolton] to come into a team that's pushing for the play-offs is exciting and hopefully I can add to that.

"It's a different type of pressure to play under but it's an exciting kind, and the sort you want to be playing under at the right end of the table.

"It all happened pretty quickly and as soon as I heard Bolton had agreed it I came down and watched the boys get a good win on Tuesday night.

"I can bring a directness to the team. I like to run with the ball, put crosses in so hopefully I can help create a few goals when given the opportunity.

"The gaffer will get a good look at me in my time here so hopefully it goes well and we'll see what happens next year."
