Ipswich Town looked like being on the verge of losing two of their important players – Tyrone Mings and David McGoldrick. The duo were subjected to offers from Crystal Palace and Leicester City respectively. After their promotion to the Premier League, the duo have been taking a number of good players from the Championship. Mings and McGoldrick have been key players for Ipswich has demonstrated by manager Mick McCarthy on several occasions. After making a poor start to the campaign, it is looking almost certain that Ipswich Town may not challenge for promotion spot.
Players want to play in the Premier League and McCarthy feared for the worst when the Premier league duo came in for his key players. The former Wolverhampton Wanderers manager revealed that Crystal Palace made a substantial offer for defender Mings despite McCarthy clearly stating to Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock that he did not want to sell Mings. The manager is just happy that the club decided not to sell him despite receiving a very healthy offer. McCarthy also revealed that club owner Marcus Evans turned down a good offer for striker McGoldrick.
“I thought Didz might be on his way to Leicester. I said that on Saturday but [owner Marcus Evans] didn’t ever want it to happen. He turned down a substantial amount of money and the deal fell through.
Obviously I’m delighted that Didz is staying. I’ve got a player that I thought I might be without so it’s a good signing for us in the window. I spoke to Neil Warnock. He asked about Tyrone and I told him what a good player he is and that I didn’t want to lose him. That didn’t deter their interest,” said McCarthy.
Ipswich have only one win in the Championship this campaign after five matches.
