James McCarthy set for Everton move

REPUBLIC of Ireland star James McCarthy is tipped for a big money move to Everton.

The central midfielder is expected to make a return to the Premiership if Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini  are allowed to leave Everton for Manchester United.

McCarthy is playing for newly relegated Wigan in the Championship, but is set for a big money reunion with his former manager Roberto Martinez before the transfer window closes next Monday night.

Baines and Fellaini  have already been the subject of a £30m bid from Manchester United earlier this summer, but it was dismissed out of hand by Everton.

However, with the transfer window closing on Monday night, Everton are steeling themselves for another bid from United.

Baines has already asked manager Martinez and the club's chairman Bill Kenwright to agree a deal to sell him to Manchester United.

The left-back has been the subject of three bids from United over the summer, for £9m, £12m and as part of a joint bid worth up to £30m, including Marouane Fellaini, all of which have been rejected.

It is anticipated that United will bid for a fourth time before the transfer window closes on Monday night.

Martinez is said to be looking for midfield re-enforcements and McCarthy shined under him at Wigan.

Meanwhile, Martinez confirmed midfielder Darron Gibson would return to training this week after recovering from a knee injury.

However, the Republic of Ireland international is unlikely to be involved at Cardiff on Saturday.
