Striker McGoldrick will see his loan spell at Town run out after the weekend although should return to Portman Road on a permanent deal in the summer
Mick McCarthy has revealed to the Club website that David McGoldrick will play the final game of his loan spell against Derby this weekend.
The striker joined Blues in January on loan from Nottingham Forest but could only sign for a maximum of 93 days, having already taken in a ‘window-to-window’ loan this season and turning out for both the Reds and Coventry.
“Derby will be Didsy’s last game, yes,” Mick told the Club website.
“We could only take him on an emergency 93 day loan because he had already played for Forest and Coventry, so it was either take him at the start until April, or wait until February 8th and have him until the final game.
“He’s contributed and played his part but we’ve got four other strikers in Aaron Mclean, Daryl Murphy, Frank Nouble and Michael Chopra.
“He could have got injured at any time anyway, so it’s one of those things and we just have to get on with it.
“We’ve agreed to sign him in the summer, providing we stay in the Championship and that will be done once he’s sorted his contract with Forest at the end of the campaign.”
