BARNSLEY: Keith Hill is keen on Forest striker David McGoldrick

Have your say

BARNSLEY want former Sheffield Wednesday loan striker David McGoldrick.

The Nottingham Forest ace is currently on loan at League One Coventry City, now under the management of former Reds’ boss Mark Robins.

But the striker’s loan deal expires on January 2 and it’s believed he has no future at Forest, who have seven other strikers.

Reds boss Keith Hill is a big admirer of the player who played four games on loan with the Owls last season.

And this term McGoldrick has impressed with eight goals in 14 appearances for the Sky Blues.

Six goals in his last six games is another telling stat to explain why McGoldrick is held in high-esteem. Hill has other targets but is looking into the possibility of signing the 24-year-old.

McGoldrick started his career with Notts County in 2004 before a five-year spell with Southampton. He had loan spells with the Magpies, Bournemouth and Port Vale before joining Forest in June 2009 for a £1m fee.

Last year, he played for the Owls before opting for a chance to play for the Sky Blues having fallen down the pecking order at the City Ground.
