Southend United have signed Ipswich Town defender Piotr Malarczyk on loan for the rest of the season.
The 24-year-old former Poland Under-21 international joined Town from Polish side Korona Kielce on a two-year contract in the summer.
But he has been restricted to just six appearances and moves to a team currently ninth in League One.
Meanwhile, Ipswich have extended midfielder Ben Pringle’s loan from Fulham until the end of the season.
The 26-year-old has made seven appearances for Mick McCarthy’s side since joining in February, scoring in 1-0 wins over Huddersfield and Nottingham Forest.
