Stephen Hunt insists that his Ipswich Town teammate David McGoldrick would do a good job for the Republic of Ireland.

Stephen Hunt has urged Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill to include his Ipswich Town teammate David McGoldrick in his next squad.

It was recently revealed that 26-year-old McGoldrick qualified to play for Ireland at international level because his grandparents were born there.

"David has been banging them in. He is definitely something different to what Ireland have right now," Hunt is quoted as saying by the East Anglian Daily Times.

"We have strikers who are good at holding the ball up and he has all that plus he is good at coming into the spaces and scores goals.

"He would do really well for us and I would love to see him in the Ireland squad. "Having known him for three months or so now I know he has the right attitude and the commitment to play for Ireland."

Ireland are next in action when they face Serbia in a friendly in March.
