Frenchman Bilel Mohsni has joined npower Championship side Ipswich Town on a three-month loan spell today.
Mohsni will remain at Portman Road until January after he refused to return to Roots Hall in pre-season.
The move follows a trial spell last month with the Tractor Boys in which he scored for their reserve side in a 6-0 win against Cardiff City.
The versatile Mohsni joined Blues on a free transfer in July 2010 and scored 18 goals in 71 games for the club.
However, he did not return to Roots Hall at the start of the season and spent time on trial with both West Ham United and Birmingham City.
