Manager Mick McCarthy has said that Scott Loach and Paul Taylor will likely move on in the summer.

Speaking to the Official Site McCarthy said that having played second fiddle all season to Dean Gerken, Loachy really wanted first team football so a departure was likely.

Similarly for Taylor who has mostly been used from the substitutes bench.

‘Loachy wants to play football, be a number one and that means he will probably have to go elsewhere. He has been the perfect professional. When he has come in and played, he has done well. Only one keeper can play though and Gerks has been great for us.’

McCarthy goes on to state that he’s certainly not pushing him out the door, it really just is he wants to play week in week out and the gaffer respects that, but it gives rise to only one conclusion at the moment and that will mean him departing and then us finding somebody who can compete with Gerken to keep him on his toes, and be capable of stepping in when needed.

As for Taylor, he says he believes he’ll end up somewhere else as well.

‘He’s not been playing in my team and he won’t be playing in my team. He’s not my type of player.’

The manager also added that Sylvian Ebanks-Blake will not be offered a new contract, as his short term deal signed in December is due to expire, but no decision has yet been made on whether we will be offering deals to Stephen Hunt, Paul Green or Frazer Richardson.
