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."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
