According to the Daily Mail, West Ham United are among a host of clubs keeping tabs on Crystal Palace midfielder James McCarthy ahead of a potential summer move – with the Irishman out of contract at the end of this season.
McCarthy is still to discuss a new deal at Selhurst Park, leading to many sides including West Ham taking an interest in snapping up the 30-year-old as they keep close eye on developments across London.
