James McCarthy

Having been linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer, former captain has advised to remain at Everton, at least for the immediate future.

In the immediate aftermath of Toni Kroos’ declaration that he intends to stay at Bayern Munich this summer, 23 year old McCarthy was linked reported as a target.

McCarthy joined last summer from Wigan as headed to and has impressed in Roberto Martinez’s side ever since.

Rumours of a move for the Irish midfielder seemingly appeared from nowhere and have since died down, but his national team assistant manager believes he should remain where he is for now as he told the Irish Times:

“He’s only been at two minutes.

“He’s obviously making good progress but I’m pretty sure that with there’ll be talks of lots of players going there at the moment but James is at a good club in Everton.

“He’s had a decent couple of seasons and if he keeps progressing then who knows but I’m sure he’s happy where he is.”
