The 30-year-old has struggled to cement a starting place since the arrival of boss Henning Berg.

After 11 appearances in the Championship this season, Orr was an unused substitute in the 1-1 draw at home to Birmingham, having to make way for 18-year-old Adam Henley.

Orr's deal with Mick McCarthy's side is due to end on 26 January.

The veteran defender moved to Ewood Park in January this year after a spell of nearly three years with QPR, but he revealed that off-the-field matters at Rovers were the main reason behind his desire to join the Tractor Boys.

He told the East Anglian Daily Times: "There were a few things going on in the upper echelons of the club at Blackburn and I wanted to get out on loan.

"Once I heard of Ipswich's interest, I was really keen to come down here. Thankfully we've managed to get something sorted and I'm absolutely delighted.

"I know Ipswich well from playing here a number of times. It's a big club and it's an honour to be here," added Orr, who is also considering making the move a permanent deal.

"We have talked about me staying," he said. "That's the plan and I'd certainly be interested in a permanent move. If the manager and the powers that be want that to happen, I could be here longer than the loan date."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
