IPSWICH Town new boy Carlos Edwards may currently be in the tropical climates of Central America, but the Trinidad & Tobago winger can't wait to swap it for a potentially cold night at Middlesbrough.

The 30-year-old - who, alongside Grant Leadbitter, was yesterday part of a deadline day double switch from Sunderland to Portman Road for almost £4m - is currently in Honduras ahead of a World Cup qualifier there this Saturday.

Speaking from his base in San Pedro Sula, Edwards said: “I'm delighted to be joining a club with such history and can't wait to work with Roy Keane again.

“I'm now looking forward to the Middlesbrough game in just under two weeks' time and can't wait to be involved, if selected.”

Following the away match in Honduras, Edwards and the rest of the Soca Warriors squad will travel on to Trinidad where they will play a home match against the USA next Wednesday. Edwards will then jet straight back to the UK to join up with his new team mates ahead of their trip to the north east as they look to record their first Championship win of the season.

Keane was left delighted with his two new acquisitions - both of whom played instrumental roles in helping him get Sunderland promoted to the Premier League in the 2006/7 season.

He said: “I worked with both players at Sunderland and know what they are all about. They have dropped down from the Premier League to join us and that shows a hunger and commitment to play football for Ipswich Town. I'm delighted to have them here.

“They have played in the Championship and know what's needed to get out of this division. They will add qualities that we need at this football club.”
