Middlesbrough have enquired about the availability of James McCarthy
but the player’s agent insists the teenage talent will not be leaving
Hamilton Academical in the January transfer window. McCarthy is still just 18 but his ability has been recognised far

midfielder on trial and European giants Barcelona also linked with a
It seems our scouts have been busy in Scotland recently. Maybe they
have got a good deal in one of the hotels up there. Or maybe they just

So, we are looking at another
creative midfielder. This lad is only 18-years-old, but is getting good
reviews from the SPL. I'm not sure if the criteria for the current
scouting missions are correct at the moment for looking at potential
targets. We are in danger of falling to the bottom of the league if
we're not lucky and to be looking at inexperienced players such as
McCarthy, is just plain stupidity. Fair enough if we want him for the
future, but we have to think short-term until we are in a comfortable
position in the league.
