Instead, McGoldrick will continue to train with the Tractor Boys ahead of making a permanent move to Portman Road in the summer when his contract at Forest expires.

The 25-year-old joined Ipswich in January, having spent the first half of the season on loan at npower League One club Coventry.

His 93-day loan with the Suffolk side ended on Saturday following the Tractor Boys' 1-0 win over Forest's east Midlands rivals Derby at Pride Park.

But McGoldrick, who has scored 21 goals during his two spells away from the City Ground, will not be recalled to play a part in Forest's Championship play-off push.

Reds boss Billy Davies, who signed Nottingham-born McGoldrick from Southampton in the summer of 2009, believes he has enough options up front with Simon Cox, Billy Sharp, Darius Henderson and Dexter Blackstock.

Marcus Tudgay is also close to full fitness after recovering from a dislocated shoulder.

Meanwhile, 19-year-old winger Josh Carson hs returned to Portman Road after sustaining a broken foot while on loan at League Two side York.

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
