Ipswich Town midfielder Idris El Mizouni has joined Grimsby Town on loan for the rest of the season.

El Mizouni is the latest arrival at Blundell Park as Paul Hurst plots a safety route for the Mariners in League Two.

The Ipswich youngster arrives as Grimsby’s fifth signing in this transfer window.

No Stranger to League Two Football

The talented midfielder has made seven league appearances for parent club Ipswich Town. However, El Mizouni has spent the past year at Cambridge United in two separate loan spells.

He impressed under Mark Bonner and helped the U’s to top spot in League Two during the first half of the season. The midfielder made 11 appearances in League Two for Cambridge but now faces a completely different challenge with Grimsby.

He joins a Grimsby side desperately struggling for points in League Two. They sit in the relegation zone on a miserable run of form, something which hasn’t arrested since Hurst returned as manager.

However, despite the struggles, El Mizouni links up once again with Hurst. The boss worked with the youngster while he was manager of Ipswich during the 2017/18 season.

El Mizouni is available to make his debut in Grimsby’s crucial clash with fellow strugglers Stevenage.

The Midfielder Arrives at Grimsby Hoping for More Game Time

Speaking to the Grimsby Town website about his move, El Mizouni said: “I knew the gaffer from Ipswich, so when he was there and I was in the under 18’s. I know the way he wants to play and I really like that, I think that way suits me and I want to help him and the team stay in the league.

“I really like Paul and Chris’ style of play. I know they like to try and play out from the back and then I loved the fact that they were watching the youngsters in training. Every session they wanted to try and put the youngsters into the training sessions and I think that is really good for players like myself for example. When I was there I remember Doigy and the gaffer were watching the under 18’s train which was good.

“I’m 20 now and I need first-team football. I was at Cambridge last year and I was playing which was decent and then I came back. I have played games there, I know how the league is and I believe that I can help the team. I think I am a more technical centre midfielder, I can play box to box or as a number 10, so I like to carry the ball and make things happen.”
