Ipswich Town could now be set to keep star striker David McGoldrick after Premier League club Leicester City refused to meet the club's valuation.
Manager Mick McCarthy confirmed over the weekend that a bid had been submitted by the Foxes, but they appear to have now dropped their interest.
It's understood that Town were asking for a fee in the region of £8million for McGoldrick, who scored 16 goals in The Championship last season.
However, Crystal Palace are also reportedly interested in signing the former Nottingham Forest man, although they could move for Leicester's Chris Wood instead.
