Skysports.com understands Ipswich are lining up a loan move for Swansea forward Craig Beattie.

Ipswich boss Roy Keane has revealed the club are close to bringing in a new signing on loan and Beattie is thought to be the mystery target.

Keane knows Beattie from his time at Celtic and is thought to be an admirer of the Scotland international.

Beattie has recently recovered from injury and Swans boss Brendan Rodgers could be willing to loan him out so that he can get some valuable first-team action under his belt.

Keane is looking to bolster his attacking options and he sees Beattie as a key addition to his squad as he looks to build on their impressive start to the season.
