West Ham United hero to complete Australian switch?

West Ham Manchester City George McCartneyThe Football Transfer Tavern is, as expected, quite quiet today but there are still deals going on and free agents looking for their next move.

And according to talkSPORT, one of those free agents looking around for the next step in their career is former West Ham United and Sunderland left back George McCartney.

The Northern Ireland international was released by Sam Allarydyce at the end of last season but failed to find a team during the summer.

But it now looks like the defender – who made 26 appearances for the Hammers last season – could finally find his route back into football.

Reports are suggesting the defender has held talks with Australian A-League side Sydney FC in regards to signing on a free transfer.

Sydney FC kick off their season against the recently rebranded Melbourne City but they will have to do it without Italian legend Alessandro Del Piero.

The former Juventus striker has signed a four-month deal with Indian side the Delhi Daredevils.

West Ham fans. Do you think McCartney is still good enough for another season in the Premier League or should he cash in at Sydney FC? Let us know your thoughts below.
