Ipswich Town man issues positive message despite talks of Portman Road return



On-loan Rotherham United striker Kieffer Moore has insisted he is happy at the club, despite Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy hinting at recalling the in-form forward.

The League One top scorer, who already has thirteen goals to his name this season, has been sensational for the Millers, with his goals helping the south Yorkshire side into the playoff places.

McCarthy had suggested that he was considering bringing Moore back to Portman Road for the second half of the season, declaring: “The more he’s scoring goals, the view is that he’s more likely to come back here at Christmas and see whether he can replicate it in the Championship.”

However, 25-year-old Moore claimed he was happy to stay at The New York Stadium to help finish what he started with the Millers, but claimed that he would stay out of the decision-making process in whether to recall him or not.

“I don’t really have a say in it. Of course I would be happy to stay, but it’s out of my hands,” Moore told Green’Un24 as quoted in The Football League Paper.

“I am enjoying my football and enjoying scoring goals.”

The Verdict

McCarthy would be mad to leave the in-form striker at another club.

Moore is scoring goals for fun, and with Ipswich chasing a playoff spot following an excellent start to the new campaign, bringing the striker back to the club would feel like a brand new signing.

Joe Garner and Martyn Waghorn are scoring goals for fun for McCarthy at the moment, but one injury could derail the Tractor Boys season.

Moore will come into the squad and fight for a starting berth, and could well evolve into the man to lead Town from their soon to be 16-year exodus from the Premier League.
