Wellens And Campbell Worth Keeping At Ipswich

Wellens And Campbell Worth Keeping At Ipswich

It has not taken new Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy long to realise who is putting ina decent shift for the Blues.

McCarthy wants to keep hold of loan pair DJ Campbell and Richie Wellens at Portman Road after impressing in the win at Birmingham.

Campbell bagged his third goal in five appearances since joining from QPR while Wellens once again showed quality and hard graft.

The striker is a month into his three-month stay at Portman Road but McCarthy is already looking to tie him down longer.

McCarthy told the Express: 'He's a goalscorer, there's no question about that.

'I'll have to be talking to the powers that be and try and keep him because he's a great little character. He's good around the place. I thought he played well.'

Midfielder Wellens is another of eight loan players in total at Ipswich, although his month-long stay ends after the palce game tomorrow.

McCarthy said: 'Richie was terrific. I hope I can keep him, I'll have to speak to Nigel (Pearson, Leicester manager) about that.'
