David Wagner expects to discuss James Vaughan’s immediate future at the start of the week.

The striker’s loan at Championship rivals Birmingham City ends with the home game against Brentford.

The 27-year-old, an unused substitute in Monday’s 1-0 home win over MK Dons, has made four Blues starts and one appearance from the bench.

The Birmingham-born player was ruled out of the game against Town at St Andrew’s, which Wagner’s side won 2-0.

Injury-plagued Vaughan will not be offered a new deal by Town when his current contract runs out this summer.

His inability to train at the intensity demanded by head coach David Wagner was at the heart of his move to the Midlands.

“Everything I hear from Birmingham is that they are very satisfied with his performances,” said Wagner.

“We will discuss things with them, and maybe someone else will be interested.

“I know he has played games, and this is good, but I don’t know his exact fitness levels.”

Everton product Vaughan has scored 33 goals, including two hat tricks, in 95 Town games.

The ex-England Under 21 international has made four appearances this season, all as a substitute. He joined on loan from Norwich City in August 2012 and the move was made permanent in a £600,000 deal the close-season after.
