Ipswich Town striker Macauley Bonne tipped to return to Queens Park Rangers in January
Ian Holloway has warned Ipswich Town to prepare for the January departure of Macauley Bonne.
The striker has been the Tractor Boys' leading light this term, scoring a joint League One high of nine goals since arriving on loan from Queens Park Rangers.
However, ex-QPR boss Holloway believes such clinical form will prompt his former club to recall the 25-year-old during the winter window.
He told Football League World: “Come January I would be planning that he won’t be there. I hate to be that bloke, but you loan a kid out, he keeps scoring like that, and your own players go ‘Why are you loaning him out?!’
“The supporters will be wanting him back so, it’s a great experience for the boy to be going and playing in the Ipswich first-team, but I think he’ll be back.
“I would definitely be looking for another one to take on. This is the problem you have, and all I want to say is that Ipswich fans will be fuming that they’ve got to borrow someone, from Queens Park Rangers.
“Because they will be looking at themselves as a club the same size, if not bigger than QPR. They’ll be frustrated, totally and utterly frustrated as to where they are in the Football League.”
Bonne will be looking to score in his fourth Ipswich appearance in a row on Saturday at Cambridge United (3pm).
