JAMES COLLINS has joined Ipswich on a six-month deal.

The Wales centre-back, 35, was poised to sign for Aston Villa until he was struck by a calf injury last month.

And Paul Lambert has swooped to add experience to his defence for the club’s survival battle in the Championship.

Collins was at his old club West Ham earlier in the season as he built up his fitness, months after getting released by them.

And he has been eyed by second-tier clubs who have been looking to pick him up on a free transfer.

Collins has not played at Championship level since he was at Cardiff at the start of his career.

He has played in the Premier League since during two spells with Aston Villa and also West Ham.

Lambert wants to tap into that experience to close the 10-point gap from climbing out of the bottom three.

Lambert has already brought in Simon Dawkins on a free, while Callum Elder, Will Keane and Collin Quaner have arrived on loan.
