Owner doesn't want to sell but sometimes things have to happen says Mick

Mick McCarthy has revealed that Town have rejected a bid from Leicester for David McGoldrick. 

The Town boss also added that Club owner Marcus Evans does not want to sell the player but a deal might have to be done if the price is right. 

“Leicester have made a bid and it’s been rejected. I don’t want Didz to leave. Marcus doesn’t want to sell him,” said the Town boss. 

“David had a dead leg today. If we were playing in the FA Cup final, I’m sure we could have nursed him through but if he got injured when he knows there is a possible move to the Premier League, he would not have forgiven himself and I wouldn’t have forgiven myself. 

“It’s only natural that it’s going to upset things when he knows a bid has been made and we will see what happens. 

“I’ll let market forces dictate and see what Leicester have to say. I’ll be leaving it to Marcus but he’s a quality player and he will cost big money. 

“Didz has huge respect for me. He has huge respect for the Club but sometimes, just like with Cressy, things just have to happen.”
