David McGoldrick admits playing for Town under Mick McCarthy was something he couldn’t turn down.
The striker has joined Blues from Nottingham Forest, on loan with a view to a permanent switch to Portman Road.
The deal came just before Town sealed a switch for Hull’s Aaron Mclean, with former Southampton forward David eager to get his Blues career underway.
“It feels great to be an Ipswich Town player and everyone knows it’s a big Club,” David told the Club website.
“The chance to come and play for a Club of Ipswich’s size and under a manager like Mick McCarthy was something that I just couldn’t turn down and I’m delighted to be here.
“I’m glad that the deal is finally done and I’m looking forward to getting to know all the lads and getting my Ipswich career started.
“I’d known about Mick’s interest for a while but then I went back to Forest from my loan spell at Coventry and I thought I would be staying there.
“Then I got the call to come down to Ipswich and the next day I had signed, passed my medical and was training with the boys. It’s been a crazy 24 hours but I’m just happy that it’s all done now.”
