City have confirmed that Aaron Mclean is briefly leaving the club on loan, with Championship strugglers Ipswich the fortunate recipients of his services for the rest of the season.
It’s been a frustrating season at City for Mclean, who’s scored just once in the League all season, though he’s also notched a couple in the League Cup. With manager Steve Bruce favouring Aluko and Simpson up front and with Nick Proschwitz seemingly preferred as an option from the bench, appearances have been limited – he’s not been seen since the win at Nottingham Forest five weeks ago.
It probably calls his career at City into question, though one thing that isn’t in doubt is his ferocious workrate. Ipswich have made an extremely astute signing in their bid to survive relegation. Meanwhile, if the manager is willing to let one of his attacking options go, who might he be bringing in…?
