The 30-year-old has played 12 times for Rovers this season but after not appearing in any of their last three games, there has been a deal done that sees him move to Ipswich Town on loan.
The original deal is for the player to stay with the championship rivals until the end of January, but he has spoken out about his move.
He told the East Anglian Daily Times: "There were a few things going on in the upper echelons of the club at Blackburn and I wanted to get out on loan.
"Once I heard of Ipswich's interest I was really keen to come down here. Thankfully we've managed to get something sorted and I'm absolutely delighted.
"I know Ipswich well from playing here a number of times. It's a big club and it's an honour to be here."
