'We can get good money' - Everton fans urge club to offload 26-year-old

By Will Butcher

Everton fans have urged their club on Twitter to sell midfielder James McCarthy after a frustrating season at Goodison Park.

McCarthy, 26, has endured a tough season on Merseyside that has seen him remain sidelined for much of the campaign with a string of injuries, including hamstring and groin problems.

The Daily Mail claimed earlier this month that Premier League new boys Newcastle are keen to sign the Ireland international in a deal worth £20million this summer.

Toon manager Rafa Benitez has identified the former Wigan ace as a possible summer transfer target, as he looks to bolster his side with proven Premier League talent.

McCarthy joined the Toffees from Lancashire outfit Wigan back in the summer of 2014, but made just 13 appearances for Ronald Koeman’s side this season.
