WEDNESDAY’s new striker David McGoldrick will be happy to extend his Hillsborough loan beyond the Sheffield derby.

As things stand the forward who made his home debut in the 3-0 win against Exeter is due to return to Forest after the Bramall Lane clash on October 16.

But the 23-year-old who also scored on his debut at Yeovil nine days ago sees his Owls stay as a big opportunity for him and he is enjoying his partnership with on-form Gary Madine.

“To be part of playing for Sheffield Wednesday is a great honour,” said McGoldrick, who lives in Nottingham. “It’s only up the road from me and my family; it’s a big club and I couldn’t turn it down.

“There are good players here who could easily play in the Championship; that’s what excited me when I came here. If Wednesday want me, I’m happy to stay. I just love playing football. Two years I’ve been at Forest and I haven’t had a big run in the team.”

McGoldrick has become one of four main strikers; Madine hit his ninth goal in his last seven League games, against Exeter. Chris O’Grady and Ryan Lowe were both subs after their recovery from injuries.

Clinton Morrison moved out on loan on Saturday after MK Dons made an improved offer towards his wages.

McGoldrick said of Madine: “I play off his flicks. He’s a big guy. He wins his headers. He’s good with the ball as well.

“I think we linked up well at Yeovil and we both got a goal. Now he’s got two more. The strikers are scoring. It’s a good thing.”
