Victor Moses and James McCarthy have both been approached by Latics, an offer has even been tabled already for 18 year old McCarthy.

James McCarthy

James McCarthy, currently impressing in the SPL at Hamilton has had a £2 million bid accepted for his signature.

Willy McKay has confirmed that talks are to take place in the next few days, where the player will decide his future.

It is also known that Wolves have also had a bid accepted and the player has been at Molineux today for a medical and to discuss what terms are on offer at the Midlands Club.

McCarthy is a Republic of Ireland International and it is rumoured that he has a few more teams monitoring the situation with him.


All the agent hype and the touting by Neil Warnock seems to have paid dividends ofr them as Latics have formally made an approach now for Victor Moses.

The striker is also 18 and is an England Youth International that has had the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal tracking him.

He can play up front or as a winger and has played 40 games for Crystal Palace.

As I mentioned earlier in the week, the price that was being touted about was £5 million and it would be a risk for such a young and unknown, unproven player.
