Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy says striker Kieffer Moore could still have a future at the club.
The 6ft 5in striker, 25, was recruited from non-league club Forest Green Rovers for just £10k on an 18 month contract back in January and made 11 substitute appearances for the first team at the back end of 2016/17.
He’s been loaned to League One side Rotherham United for this season and scored a hat-trick in Saturday’s 5-0 thrashing of Southend.
“Thank God we’ve got our strikers scoring because otherwise the fans would be screaming blue murder and saying ‘get him back’,” joked McCarthy, who has David McGoldrick, Joe Garner, Freddie Sears and Martyn Waghorn as striker options.
“That’s his level at the moment. He can get better because he’s got everything needed – he’s big, powerful and runs the channels. He’s just got to learn a lot of things, I think, and he’s getting the opportunity to do that playing in League One.
