McCarthy to Tottenham! Is he really needed?

Posted on July 22, 2013 by Tony

Suddenly over the course of the past few days all the talk is about McCarthy leaving Wigan with Tottenham as one of the leading contenders for his signature. We know that he is a fine player and at his age there is the promise of more to come, but just looking at the quality and numbers in the Tottenham midfield area is there actually the need for a player of his abilities, and at a supposed fee of £20m?

This Tottenham interest has all the hallmarks of either pushing up the price that Everton will have to pay for his services, or simply just pressing them into some sort of decisive move. the player is obviously more than keen on leaving and returning to the Premier League for the forthcoming season and many would have thought that he might have already been snapped up. A couple of his compatriots have already earned contracts with other established clubs while arguably, Wigan’s best performer of last season goes through the motions of appearing to happily give Wigan a year to win promotion.

I just don’t buy any of it, although stranger things have happened, with the return of Sandro and the purchase of two other midfield players as well as the emergence of Tom Carroll there really is not the need for McCarthy even if, as expected, Scott Parker and Tom Huddlestone leave, in fact thinking about it if Huddlestone were prepared to accept the type of limited playing time he is experiencing already, he would have far more to offer Tottenham in ability and alternatives.

Might be wrong but McCarthy to Everton for me.
