Dean Gerken: Staying in the Championship with Ipswich Town

The 28-year-old was a free agent after leaving Bristol City in the wake of their relegation from the Championship last season.

Gerken started his career with Colchester United and played more than 100 league games in seven years before a loan spell with Darlington.

He joined Bristol City for an undisclosed fee in the summer of 2009 but lost his place in January when he made what turned out to be his last appearance for the club against Leicester in a 4-0 home defeat.

Gerken is reunited with two Ashton Gate team-mates at Ipswich - Cole Skuse and Paul Anderson - as well as ex-Colchester team-mate Anthony Wordsworth.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
