Revealed: 85% of Celtic fans want to sign McCarthy

Loads of Celtic fans have been eyeing up potential January reinforcements, and a whopping 85 per cent of fans who voted in our poll want to sign Everton midfielder James McCarthy.

According to Sky Sports, West Brom are one of a number of teams chasing McCarthy, as the Baggies look to secure a loan deal for the 28 year-old.

The Republic of Ireland international is expected to leave Goodison Park, having lost his place during a lengthy injury layoff.

Given that Brendan Rodgers tried to sign the Irish international back in 2016, Celtic fans are hoping the boss will re-visit his interest and bring the tough-tackling 28 year-old to Glasgow.

His £15m price tag scuppered Rodgers’ hopes of a deal in 2016, but with his contract expiring in 18 months that fee will be a lot lower now.

McCarthy could be the ideal replacement for Scott Brown, who has started to show his age on occasion this season.

It would also be a huge boost for fans after watching neighbours Rangers sign a fellow Premier League midfielder in Steven Davis, and there is certainly an argument that McCarthy is the superior player.
