Celtic and Newcastle United are both reported to be keen on signing Crystal Palace midfielder James McCarthy over the coming months.
As to be expected, plenty of Eagles fans have been reacting to the two club’s reported interest in the 30-year-old.
According to TEAMtalk, Newcastle are looking to pip Celtic to a deal for the Irishman, with the Scottish giants coming close to landing the player on a pre-contract agreement back in January.
Should McCarthy be offered a new deal?
No, get rid!
Yes, still useful!
The midfielder began the campaign as a regular under Roy Hodgson, but he has since fallen out of favour and a Palace exit appears to be on the cards.
Palace fans react
Here is what some Palace fans had to say in reply. A few praised the player, whereas others want to see the back of the midfielder over the coming months.
“Get rid. Please”
“A fit James McCarthy is one of our most solid players.”
“Move him on”
“I like him, prepared to fight for the team”
“Good when he plays but he doesn’t often.”
“Need to get younger players in”
