Many of our punters here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see where James McCarthy ends up this month as, according to The Daily Mail, Newcastle and Crystal Palace are keen.
The Irish international has not had much of a season this year with his playing time very limited at Everton.
The likes of Gareth Barry, Idrissa Gueye and the emerging Tom Davies have all been ahead of him in the pecking order with Ronald Koeman appearing reluctant to use him.
It could, then, mean that he wants a move away from Merseyside in the near future with south London and the north east possible destinations.
The Eagles and the Magpies are having very different seasons at the moment with Newcastle looking good for promotion in the Championship and Palace having every chance of going the other way out of the top flight.
Signing McCarthy could be pivotal to both side’s ambitions for the rest of the campaign and so it’s really up to the midfielder to decide where he might want to end up.
