McAuley set to leave Foxes
It emerged earlier today that Foxes centre-half and Northern Ireland International Gareth McAuley could be on the verge of a £1.5 million move to Ipswich's Portman Road.
Jim Magilton, the Ipswich manager, had stated a clear interest in McAuley during the January transfer window and had 3 bids turned down.
It looks as if Magilton may have finally got his man after it was reported the defender, who only signed a 3-year contract back in February, had taken a medical. It appears the prospect of League 1 football doesn't fit in with his plans to keep his place in the Northern Irish team.
For most of the season McAuley, along with Kisnorbo and Stearman, formed one of the most solid defences in the Championship after conceding only 45 goals. With Kisnorbo out with a lengthy lay-off and many Premiership clubs looking at Stearman, City will need to make some shrewd signings throughout the summer.
Some fans see it as a disappointment that he will be going whereas others see it as a good sale for a good price.
