Cardiff City are the favourites to sign Ipswich Town’s David McGoldrick according to odds published by Bet Victor.
The 30-year-old striker has now been at Ipswich for four-and-a-half years, five years if you include the initial loan deal, having signed from Nottingham Forest in 2013. And while he may not have been the most fashionable signing in the world, he has been a very good player for Ipswich and that has continued this season. He has scored eight goals in 22 appearances this season though it is noted he hasn’t netted since mid-November when he scored in a 2-2 draw with Hull City.
However his contract is set to expire in the summer and that has led to many teams sniffing around McGoldrick to see if they can snap him up for a reduced fee. And the bookies believe that the team most likely to sign the six-time capped Republic of Ireland striker are Cardiff City. They are looking for more players to keep their promotion bid going and think bringing in a striker like McGoldrick would be an ideal move. They have been priced at a favourable 2/1.
But they aren’t the only team to be given good odds on signing McGoldrick. Birmingham City have been priced at 4/1 as they look for players who can fire them to safety, Fulham have odds of 6/1 of signing McGoldrick as they look for a new striker after the signing of Rui Fonte did not work out while Leeds United have also been given the same odds as they look to get someone who can improve the side enough to get them into the Sky Bet Championship play-offs.
