DJ Campbell: Impressed during his loan spell at Ipswich Town

Campbell has impressed during his loan stint at Portman Road netting eight goals in 12 appearances for Town.

The 31-year-old is due back at QPR next month, but he is unsure of his long-term future at the Premier League club.

McCarthy believes Ipswich would be Campbell's first choice if he was to leave QPR, but he is aware his form at Portman Road could increase competition for his services.

"They [other clubs] will have all noticed DJ scoring goals here but there is nothing we can do about that," McCarthy told the club's official website.

"All we can do is try and do a deal with him. He wants to stay long term at a club and I think this club would be his first choice, with things starting to go better.

"But there are a lot of mitigating circumstances that can change that situation. Let's just wait and see."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
