David Moyes’ first few weeks as Sunderland boss have been a relatively uneventful affair thus far, but judging by this report – things could be about to get interesting for the Sunderland fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
With just two weeks to go until the Premier League transfer window slams shut, last minute deals were always going to be a big part of the summer’s conclusion – and David Moyes is seemingly keen to get in on the action.
According to The Bleacher Report’s Dean Jones, David Moyes has been in touch with his old club, Everton, and enquired regarding the availability of midfielder James McCarthy – see the tweet below.

Whilst no other details are available at this point, Moyes clearly views McCarthy as someone that could add something to his squad should he be available, though whether Koeman views the midfielder as a key part of his plans remains unclear.
McCarthy has had a mixed spell in Merseyside, often failing to consistently provide high quality performances – but that seemingly hasn’t put off David Moyes as he bids to improve his midfield for the coming season.
Everton fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are largely undecided on their feelings towards the Republic of Ireland midfielder, and whilst some feel that his time is up at Goodison Park; many believe he deserves one more shot under new manager Ronald Koeman.
Sunderland fans – we want to hear from you! Would be pleased if Moyes follows up his interest with a bid for McCarthy? Everton fans – would you be sad to see him go?
