Taylor, Wordsworth, Nouble and Veseli are all transfer-listed, while it’s unlikely that Jonny Williams will be returning to Ipswich Town

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy has told four of his loaned out players – Paul Taylor, Frank Nouble, Anthony Wordsworth and Freddie Veseli – that they are all available for transfer when the January window opens.

Striker Taylor, a £1.5m buy by previous boss Paul Jewell, and midfielder Wordsworth, a £100,000 purchase by McCarthy from Essex neighbours Colchester, are both currently struggling to get game time at Championship rivals Rotherham.

Striker Nouble, who cost Town £25,000 from McCarthy’s former club Wolves, has scored four goals in 12 appearances for League One club Coventry.

Former Manchester United and Manchester City youngster Veseli is impressing at League One side Port Vale following an injury set-back.

“I’ve not heard from Coventry, but I let Frank play in the FA Cup for them with the view that they would take him on for longer,” said McCarthy, whose side are second in the Championship table heading into a Boxing Day game at fellow high-fliers Brentford.

“Woody (Wordsworth) and Paul Taylor started off playing alright for Rotherham, he (manager Steve Evans) made changes and now they’re not playing. I don’t know what’s happening with them, but their futures are elsewhere – not here. It’s the same with Freddie Veseli.

“That means they will all be transferred. If they come back they won’t be playing. I can’t make that any plainer can I? They are not going to play here. Even if they come back they’ll be going somewhere else.”

On his other loanee, young striker Jack Marriott having been less prolific during his second spell at Conference club Woking, the Blues boss said: “Jack hasn’t been playing regularly and not had the same degree of success he had there first time around. He needs to play somewhere regularly and get some goals before he even thinks about getting in my team.”

Meanwhile, McCarthy says it is unlikely that Jonny Williams will be returning on loan. The Welsh international’s second temporary spell at the club was cut short when he suffered a thigh injury in the 1-0 home win over Watford on November 8.

“I’ve got to put a call in to Neil (Warnock),” said McCarthy. “I don’t know what they’ll do with him. I would suspect they will use him. They were doing well while he was here, they were getting good results so they didn’t need him.

“I got the feeling they wanted to take a look at him at the end of the loan though and now I see Neil is saying they need a few new faces.

“Who knows what will happen? Listen, he knows there’s a home for him here if they want to loan him out again.”

On Darren Ambrose, whose short-term deal expires at the end of the month, McCarthy said: “I don’t need to speak to him yet. Let’s get the games out the way. He’s done alright Darren. He came on as a sub on Saturday, so he’s contributing. I just haven’t spoken to him yet. I’ll sit down and talk to him when I’ve got these games out the way.”

  • There is no need for that you simply have to ask for my entry to be removed, if what I claim is incorrect it will be removed, but your difficulty is I can prove it is correct.

  • Well , if you look more carefully Cyril, you will see that i am offering £100 to charity if you can prove that i post under two names. You of course must also put up £100 if you are wrong and the EADT will easily confirm that. However you saw the original post and are simply playing for time. Merry christmas to you to.

  • The answer to the people who put negative comments on here is for everyone to ignore them so they don't have a bait to rise to. They will then hopefully trot back up the A140 and never be heard of again. COYB and Happy Christmas

  • Unfortunately for these two gentlement I have NEVER commented on the ability of Berra,however I did say that at the time his signing was not necessary as only two weeks previous our manager had told us we had the best two central defenders in the league. What has happened now is we have a square peg in a round hole as he cannot drop his captain, do you want to argue with that. A s for telredhotitfc he has to be rude and pathetic as he has been found out and dare not try to do anything about it. I have my opinion and I do not ask anyone else to share it, and time will tell, although I do accept that at the moment the odds are not looking good.

  • Stadistic, I'm sure we paid 100k for WW. I think the reason it hasn't worked out for him is as much about injury proneness than anything. That and maybe not quite capable of the step up.

  • I know a club who paid over £8m for a striker, who managed to score just ONE goal. That club have sent him out on loan. Now THATs a duff signing!

  • Cyril, MM brought in Nouble for £25k and Wordworth for free. Not all players work out but at least Town were not stung too badly. We got a few good performances out of Frank last season at least. However Paul Taylor was JEWELL signing and he cost £1.5 million and was the highest paid player at the club. MM has made absolutely correct the right decision to get him off the wage bill (at least partially i don't know the details of the arrangement). But at the end of the day its great management all round from MIck. thanks for asking for the clarification.

  • Cyril MM signed Nouble for 30k and WW for a hundred. All managers sign duds and the ones that sign more good ones than bad tend to be the ones who do well. I can give you a list of duffers signed by Fergie and Wenger if you like. Secondly MM did not sign your beloved Paul Taylor for 1.5 mill. FN and WW cost 130k combined. You were quire insidious when we loaned him out . Perhaps he can come back and we'll loan out Berra who you wouldn't have taken.

  • In all honesty not many surprises in the transfer listings. Whilst with Ambrose I suspect he will get a few games now that we have a few injuries in midfield. You can't really show your best in a cameo role and Darren's not really an impact player coming on as sub. It's up to him if he get's the chance to stake a claim and I think this has been the highlight of this season in that a vast majority who have come in mainly due to injuries or suspension have made it very difficult for MM to leave out when the other player comes back. The exception seems to have been Johnny Parr, who I feel has been unlucky, but it just goes to show that if Tyrone Mings was sold for a silly amount at least we would have a decent replacement. Although having said that, I hope he's not sold as there's no point in going to the Premiership and then ending up back in this Division the following season and I would suspect we would be short priced favourites with the bookies to come back down. That is of course providing we reach the land of milk and honey and that's no guarantee.

  • the cream rises to the top, or in Taylor and Wordsworths case the sediment drops to the bottom. I think we can now all see that loaning them out to Rotherham was the correct decision. Has Taylor even scored for them?. We won't get any money for them but good riddance. In Noubles case i'm happy to see him doing well hopefully he can secure a permanent move there. he gave 100% which is why he became a bit of a cult figure but unfortunately he had a poor touch and couldn't hit a barn door in the championship.

  • What that, Paul Taylor, the only player deemed to have any skill at the club, saviour of Ipswich, the man on who's shoulders our entire season rested, according to some, cant even get in a struggling Rotherham team? How odd such a good player, you would think, would get games week in, week out so what could possibly be the cause? Perhaps its just his attitude, lack of consistency, and a style of play that flatter's to deceive. That and a limited amount of real talent. Perhaps Mick knows what he's doing after all? Just a thought. Merry Xmas.
