McGoldrick Approach Accepted
Friday, 4th Jan 2013 12:43

TWTD understands that Nottingham Forest have accepted a Town approach for striker David McGoldrick. Reports that the Blues were targeting the 25-year-old on loan surfaced earlier this morning, Town boss Mick McCarthy and his assistant Terry Connor having watched him in action during his loan spell at Coventry recently.

McGoldrick, who we understand could join the Blues as soon as today, spent the first half of the season on loan with the Sky Blues, scoring 17 goals in 24 starts and one sub appearance.

Asked about the 25-year-old as an alternative to DJ Campbell, who has returned to parent club QPR and will feature in the FA Cup for them tomorrow, last week, McCarthy said: “He’s scored a few goals for Coventry on loan and we’ve been looking all over the place. But I wouldn’t tell you my targets, you know that.”

McGoldrick started his career with Notts County but moved to Southampton when still a 16-year-old, having already broken into the Magpies' first team.

The 6ft 1in tall pacey frontman, who spent tim eback at Meadow Lane and at Port Vale and Bournemouth on loan while a Saint, was on the losing side as Town won the 2005 FA Youth Cup.

He joined Forest in 2009 for £1 million, signing a four-year deal, and since then has been on loan at Sheffield Wednesday and then Coventry.

The Blues are also being linked with Hull City striker Aaron Mclean.

Great signing, straight into the squad for tomorrow I reckon!

Excellent! So do we think this is a permanent signing rather than a loan?

Makes your head turn and hairs on the back of your neck stand up the news today! Can I suggest the GOOD OLD TIMES might not be too far from Portman Road???
