Aston Villa have reportedly joined the race for Ipswich Town striker David McGoldrick, who is also said to be a target for rivals Birmingham City and Cardiff City.

Ipswich Town striker David McGoldrick has attracted interest from a third Championship club, according to a report.

The 30-year-old's contract situation at Portman Road makes him a hot property, having recently entered the final six months of his existing deal.

Town boss Mick McCarthy is said to be prepared to reluctantly offload for £500,000, knowing that the in-demand forward is free to leave at the end of the campaign.

Cardiff looked to be at the front of the queue for McGoldrick, only to then turn their attention to Bournemouth's Lewis Grabban, while Birmingham have also been touted as a possible destination.

Another of the division's promotion-chasing sides have now joined the race, with the Birmingham Mail suggesting that Steve Bruce wants to strengthen up top with a cut-price option.

McGoldrick has netted eight times in 22 appearances for the Tractor Boys this season.
