David McGoldrick's 25 goals for Ipswich are the most he has scored for any club

Ipswich Town striker David McGoldrick has said he would have been interested in a move to Leicester in the summer.

The Premier League side reportedly made an approachexternal-link for the 26-year-old at the end of August, after he scored 16 goals last season.

"I wouldn't say my head was turned. I wasn't banging doors or demanding to move," he told BBC Radio Suffolk.

"But in a job where you have an offer to better your career, you're going to be thinking about it."

McGoldrick joined Ipswich from hometown club Nottingham Forest last year and has gone on to score 25 goals in 64 games.

After starting his career at Notts County, he has gone on to feature for Southampton, Port Vale, Forest and Coventry, but has never played in the Premier League.

And the lure of joining the Foxes in the top flight was an appealing one for the Republic of Ireland international.

"Leicester is near home, it's the Premier League, one of my best mates Wes Morgan plays for them," he said.

"If you got offered a job as a top reporter, you would think about it.

"It would have been a good move for me, but it didn't go through. I never once spat my dummy out and I've knuckled down."
