McGoldrick's Hopes Of Sky Blues Move Look Slim

David McGoldrick may not have proved the most prolific or popular striker that Nottingham Forest have ever had during his time at the City Ground, but he has won plenty of admirers since joining Coventry City on loan at the beginning of this season.

The Nottingham born centre forward signed from Southampton in 2009, for a fee of 1m and earned himself a hefty wage and a four year contract into the bargain. That contract comes to an end this season and the player will be looking for a new deal elsewhere, with his chances of getting a new deal here being none.

Whilst McGoldrick only bagged a disappointing 8 goals in 63 appearances for the Reds', he has found scoring a little easier to come by in League 1. He's scored 12 goals in 20 appearances for the Sky Blues this term and has become a fans favourite at the Ricoh.

McGoldrick has expressed his desire to make the move a permanent one and Coventry themselves are making all the right noises about signing him. But, as far as the noises coming out of the Ricoh are concerned, they should perhaps be taken with a pinch of salt. The club have admitted they are skint, can't afford to pay the rent on the stadium and face possible administration in the New Year.

The chances of getting a fee from the Sky Blues are looking like slim to none, but there has been interest in him shown by both Barnsley and Sheffield Wednesday. Forest are waisting no time in making others aware of his availability, with Sean O'Driscoll saying they are in talks with Coventry and are willing to listen to others. A move away from the City Ground may still be possible for McGoldrick, but the chances of him going to Coventry look slim to say the least.
