Campbell bagged his third goal in five appearances since joining from QPR to seal Saturday's 1-0 win at Birmingham and end Ipswich's sorry 12-match winless run in McCarthy's first game at the helm.

The striker is a month into his three-month stay at Portman Road but McCarthy is already looking to tie him down longer.

"He's a goalscorer, there's no question about that," McCarthy said. "I'll have to be talking to the powers that be and try and keep him because he's a great little character. He's good around the place. I thought he played well."

Midfielder Wellens is another of eight loan players in total at Ipswich, although his month-long stay is now at an end.

Speaking on Saturday, McCarthy added: "I thought Richie was terrific. I hope I can keep him, I'll have to speak to Nigel (Pearson, Leicester manager) about that."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
