Inverness striker Billy McKay admits one day he would love to head back to England to play in the Championship.

The Northern Ireland international, who has had previous spells with Leicester City sand Northampton Town, is keen to again compete in his country of birth but insists he is content with Caley for the time being.

"I'd love at some point in my career to maybe play in the Championship back down in England, but I'm very happy here. I'm playing well and scoring goals, which is all I really want to do as a player,” said McKay, who has scored 18 goals in all competitions this season.

"I think obviously last season, missing out on the European spot and the (League Cup) final, you know first and foremost we've got Sunday's game, if we get to a final that will be one better than last season straight away.

"And then make sure we're in the top six and still fighting for Europe when the split comes.

"At the minute I'm just loving playing for Inverness, scoring goals, and hopefully with them I can get to a cup final and play in a cup final."

On Sunday, Inverness take on Heart of Midlothian in the League Cup semi-final after losing to the Edinburgh club on penalties at the same stage last term.
