Zoumana Camara staying at PSG; Ipswich Town sign Reece Brown on loan

Paris Saint-Germain centre-back Zoumana Camara wants to stay at the Parc des Princes.

Paris Saint-Germain centre-back Zoumana Camara has played down speculation linking him with Premier League trio Fulham, West Bromwich Albion and West Ham United after revealing he wants to stay at the Parc des Princes, Sky Sports understands.

Camara, 33, has been out-of-favour with PSG boss Carlo Ancelotti all season long.

The 33-year-old defender started Sunday’s league match against Olympique de Marseille on the bench, despite the absence of Mamadou Sakho and captain Thiago Silva.

Alex and Sylvain Armand started in central defence for the Ligue 1 leaders.

Camara has featured in six competitive matches, two starts, for Les Parisiens this season.

Nonetheless, the former France international wants to be part of the ‘new chapter’ at Paris Saint-Germain under the Qatar Investment Authority.

“It is always disappointing when you do not play, especially in a big game against Marseille,” said Camara.

“But you have to respect the choice of the manager and work hard in training and hopefully your chance will come.

“I want to be a part of this new chapter. Let us wait and see.”

The former Leeds United loanee, who came close to leaving PSG in the summer of 2011, is under contract at the Parc des Princes until June 2013.

Ipswich Town sign Reece Brown on loan

English Championship side Ipswich Town have completed the loan signing of Manchester United defender Reece Brown until the end of the season, according to Sky Sports.

Brown, 21, is the younger brother of former Manchester United centre-back Wes Brown, who is currently on the books at Sunderland.

The former England Under-21 international has previously been loaned out to Bradford City, Coventry City, Doncaster Rovers and Oldham Athletic.

The 21-year-old is now tasked with helping Ipswich Town stave off relegation, with Mick McCarthy’s side currently sitting four points above the drop zone.

In addition, the temporary switch will help Brown — who is reportedly highly-regarded at Old Trafford — gain valuable first team experience with the Blues.

“This is a big challenge for me and I’m excited to be signing for Ipswich,” Brown told the club’s official website.

“It’s a big club with great facilities and I’m looking forward to meeting all the lads and getting started.

“I’ve played here once before – in an U15 Academy showcase game for United – so it’s nice to be back here again and I’m ready to try and prove myself at Ipswich.

“I’m still only 21 and getting experience at a Championship club like Ipswich is good for me and it’s all part of my education.”

Earlier this season, Brown started nine matches while on loan at League One side Coventry City, featuring in the Sky Blues’ 6-1 defeat to Arsenal in the Capital One Cup on 26 September.
