Ipswich Town sit four points off League One leaders Wycombe Wanderers heading into the weekend fixture with Bristol Rovers.
It has been a solid season for Paul Lambert’s side, losing just twice in 18 Championship league games and the Tractor Boys look firm favourites to at least gain a play-off place.
With key performers such as Will Keane, James Norwood and Kayden Jackson all find consistent form, and boss Lambert has got the very best out of his squad as the aims to bring Championship football back to Portman Road.
With the January transfer window fast approaching, it remains to be seen if Ipswich will look to bring in anyone to sure up their promotion hopes, but could January see a number of players leave?
WE have taken a look at three players who could benefit from a six-month loan away from the club in January…
27-year-old DR Congo international Nsiala arrived from Shrewsbury Town to Ipswich in 2018 and the centre back was a regular figure in the Championship last season, featuring in 22 league games.
However, since dropping down to League One following relegation last term – Nsiala’s playing time has become very little.
Just one league appearance this season and a further five in cup competitions has seen the defender fall down the pecking order.
A loan move to someone like former club Shrewsbury could be exactly what Nsiala needs to kick start his career once more.
Much like Nsiala, Roberts found more playing time in the Championship last term and has gained just one league appearance this season.
Featuring in four cup games for Ipswich though, Roberts has three goals – making his impact a very good one and it could be that a number of League One clubs below Ipswich look to make a move for the under played Watford born winger.
A loan to Lincoln for the second half of last season did not work out well, but it is probably the best move for him to look for a new club in January.
Australian born striker Folami arrived on English soil in 2017 and made four appearances in the league for Ipswich during the 17/18 season.
Playing time has been hard to come by this term, making just one EFL Trophy appearance, whilst the striker has featured more regularly for the U23 side.

The 20-year-old would benefit from a loan move to any of the other League One clubs, whilst dropping down to League Two may see him gain some valuable playing time.
