The 31-year-old has scored 10 goals in 16 games to help ignite Town's mini revival but will returns to parent club QPR after Tuesday's game against Brighton.

"He'll go back and we'll see what happens after that," said McCarthy. "I think Harry Redknapp, in his position, will want to have a look at him. It was always the case that he was going to go back.

"We are trying to do a deal to keep him and hopefully we can. Fingers crossed, we'll see.

"We're speaking to his agent, I've spoken to DJ and we've offered him permanent deal effectively. There's a permanent deal there for him if that's what he wants to do.

"He loves it here though and I think he'd be happy to stay provided we can do a deal with his agent and QPR. There's a lot there to be dealt with.

"I'm conscious that we can't leave things too late in the window. I am actively looking and speaking to people about other players."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
