IPSWICH manager Jim Magilton has said that if Portsmouth striker David Nugent does not want to play for Town he can “sod off”.

Magilton was speaking after Nugent pulled out of a deal to sign him on loan yesterday.

Magilton had been keen to land the once-capped England international until the end of the season but admitted his patience ran out after failing to hear back from the former Preston forward.

He said: "Portsmouth have been very good about this but we've spoken to the player and we haven't had a response.

"So David Nugent can go and play for whoever he wants now. The very least we deserve is a phone call or something to suggest he's not available.

"Premier League players who are not in their squads seem to choose the option of not coming out and playing.
