Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy believes that striker David McGoldrick is capable of playing in midfield.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy has suggested that he may look to use David McGoldrick as a midfielder over the coming weeks.

The 25-year-old striker is Ipswich's leading goalscorer this term, having found the net on six occasions.

However, he was dropped back into a central midfield role during the weekend's 3-2 win away at Blackpool and McCarthy has conceded that it is a switch that he is likely to consider again.

"I think Didz can drop in and play in midfield," the Eastern Daily Times quotes McCarthy as saying. "He's such a clever footballer and maybe this role could suit him.

"This might allow him to find his spaces and play. He's certainly got a pass in him. He's a good player."

McGoldrick joined Ipswich in the summer from fellow Championship side Nottingham Forest.
