Loanee going back to QPR but Blues keen on permanent move

Mick McCarthy has told the Club website that DJ Campbell is going back to QPR after the game against Brighton but that Town are keen to sign him on a permanent deal. 

The striker’s loan deal is up on January 5 but he won’t feature in the FA Cup trip to Aston Villa on Saturday so will be making his last appearance of his loan in Tuesday’s game with the Seagulls at Portman Road.

“We still don’t know long term where we are with DJ,” the Town boss told the Club website.

“I have spoken to Harry [Redknapp, QPR boss] and he justifiably wants to have a look at him so DJ will be going back to QPR. 

“We will have to wait and see what develops from there. I have spoken to DJ. He is enjoying it here and we want to keep him. I have offered him what amounts to a permanent deal and hopefully something can be sorted out.

“I know there are other clubs that are keen on him as well though. It will be down to what QPR and DJ want to do in the end.

“It will be the last appearance of his loan tomorrow, let’s hope he marks it by scoring the winner.”
