West Bromwich Albion have joined both Aston Villa and Bristol City in the race to sign former Ipswich Town striker David McGoldrick, according to the Birmingham Mail.

Baggies boss Darren Moore is looking to sign Championship proven players in a bid to get the club back in the Premier League at the first time of asking.

Sam Johnstone was West Brom’s latest capture after joining the club from Manchester United for a reported fee of £6.5m.

McGoldrick had been released by the Tractor Boys at the end of last season but is not short of offers from around the Championship.

He netted 8 goals for Ipswich last season, as well as registering 4 assists.

During his time at Portman Road, the 30 year old made 133 league appearances for the club, scoring 36 goals.

He initially joined Mick McCarthy’s side on a loan deal in 2013 before making his move permanent.

He caught the attention of the former Ipswich boss during his time on loan at Coventry City, where the striker scored 16 goals in 22 appearances for the Sky Blues.

Since making his debut for the Republic of Ireland in 2014, McGoldrick has gone on to make 6 appearances for his country but has yet to find the back of the net on the International stage.

Bristol City are set to go a rebuilding job this summer after a number of key players have departed Ashton Gate.

Lee Johnson is on the lookout for a new striker and the former Ipswich man could be the perfect fit.

Aston Villa have suffered financial woe since the clubs loss in the Playoff Final.

Steve Bruce will be on the lookout for some cheap deals in the transfer window, and the possibility of signing McGoldrick on a free has proved tempting.

He is a man in demand this summer, but it still remains uncertain where David McGoldrick will be playing his football next season.
