The Sammon of College is on the move. Yes, Conor Sammon, the man with the best nickname in Irish sport, looks set to join his fourth English club with reports suggesting he is on the verge of cutting short his loan spell at Mick McCarthy's Ipswich to join Huddersfield on another loan deal until the end of the season.

Sammon joined Derby from Wigan in 2012 and initially a key member of Nigel Clough's squad. However his reliance on Sammo wained near the end of his tenure and when Steve McLaren took over, it was decided that the former UCD and Derry man would be allowed to leave on loan. Mick McCarthy quickly snapped him up to join the ever expanding Irish contingent at Ipswich and although he has made 19 league appearances so far this season, they have mostly been from the bench.


Now, with Noel Hunt set to join on a permanent deal, and Daryl Murphy and David McGoldrick looking unlikely to relinquish their starting spots, it seems best for everyone involved if Sammon departs for Yorkshire.

Huddersfield currently find themselves in 15th position in the Championship table and they would presumably look to Sammon to provide a foil for top scorer Nahki Wells who has scored 11 league goals this season.

The East Anglia Daily Times, who are reporting the move, have said that McCarthy will look to bring in someone to replace Sammon at Ipswich.
