Everton in contract dispute with McCarthy

Everton may be forced to sell midfielder James McCarthy this summer over a contract dispute, according to reports.

The Republic of Ireland international has established himself as a regular starter for Roberto Martinez’s side since joining from Wigan Athletic for £13 million in 2013.

However, his stay at Goodison Park could come to an end as the Toffees have reportedly refused to improve the 24-year-old’s current contract.

It is believed that the club assured McCarthy that his wages would rise if he performed well, but after two impressive seasons, he is yet to be offered a new deal, making 37 appearances for Everton last term.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are said to be keeping tabs on the situation, and are ready to launch a bid should he wish to leave.
