Celtic: James McCarthy update emerges

Celtic: James McCarthy update emerges -Celtic

Celtic’s negotiations with free agent James McCarthy have resumed, according to Celtic Underground.

The Lowdown: McCarthy links

Celtic Underground actually tweeted rumours of McCarthy heading to Parkhead on Friday evening.

Reliable reporters Alan Nixon and Stephen McGowan both then picked up on the story over the weekend.

Nixon claimed that Celtic are indeed discussing a possible swoop for the Irishman, whereas McGowan believed a move is being considered.

The Latest: Negotiations shared

Celtic Underground took to Twitter on Monday to share two updates on McCarthy.

The first suggested that talks were proving tricky due to a basic salary and an appearance fee, with moves for Tottenham’s Joe Hart and Shamrock Rovers’ Liam Scales looking good.

However, a few hours later, Celtic Underground, who have 69,000 followers, shared another twist by saying that negotiations have resumed.

Yes, would be a solid signing!

The Verdict: Celtic need to make a decision

With no transfer fee required after McCarthy left Crystal Palace last month, Celtic need to make a call on whether or not they are willing to meet the midfielder’s demands.

You’d expect that the 30-year-old, who has 272 Premier League appearances under his belt, will be able to find a new club this summer, so the Hoops may not be in a position where they can call all the shots.

Celtic should have a rough idea of what they are willing to offer the boyhood Hoops fan, and if he wants more, then perhaps they should look elsewhere for midfield reinforcements.

It seems as if talks are back on, though, so it’ll be interesting to see if an agreement can be reached.
