Ipswich Town have named their asking price for David McGoldrick.
The striker will be able to leave this month for £500,000 and the club will be hoping to get him off the books as he will be available for free transfer in the Summer.
Blues are yet to bring any new faces to the club in this window, but it seems they aren’t shutting up shop just yet as Cotterill looks to bolster his attacking options.
Cardiff City are also linked with the 30-year-old. Here’s what Town boss Mick McCarthy had to say on the situation:
“He is an obvious target. None of us want to lose him but we’ll see what happens,” said McCarthy.
“I guess there’s the short-term view on the four months left that we’ve got of the season and then the long-term view in terms of if he was to go, it might not be good for the short-term.
“But if we were to replace him with somebody that’s a younger version that comes in and for the long-term of the club, that may well be beneficial.
“If somebody bids for him, if somebody wants to come and take him.
“It’s been a bit of a bumpy old road with Didz for a long time with bids from Leicester apparently [four years ago and other people and then he’s had lots of injuries.
“I just say to him, ‘just keep playing, keep playing as well as you can’.”
McGoldrick bagged 36 goals in over 120 league appearances and has eight goals in 22 appearances this season.
