Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy has confirmed that he hopes to offer on loan Bolton Wanderers midfielder Liam Feeney a permanent deal at the club according to the East Anglian Daily Times.
The 29 year old has performed well for The Tractor Boys since joining the club on loan from the League 1 bound Trotters back in March and has impressed Mick McCarthy enough for the Town boss to consider signing the player on a full time basis.
The Hammersmith born midfielder’s contract with Bolton Wanderers is set to expire meaning that the player can sign for Ipswich Town on a free transfer. Feeney has made nine appearances during his time in Suffolk and scored his first Ipswich Town goal in last month’s 3-1 home defeat to Brentford.
Feeney started his career in non league football playing for Hayes and Salisbury City. The player was given an opportunity of playing in the Football League with AFC Bournemouth and made 121 appearances for The Cherries scoring 14 goals. Since leaving Dean Court in 2011, the midfielder has played at Championship level representing Millwall, Blackburn Rovers and current club Bolton Wanderers.
With Bolton Wanderers now planning for League 1 football next season, the player is unlikely to want to remain with the club while the player’s wage demands could also mean that the club would not entertain the possibility of offering Feeney a new deal.
