McCarthy to be Martinez First Signing


New Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez is looking to make Hamilton`s 18 year old midfield prospect James McCarthy his first signing as the Latics enter a new era.

McCarthy is already the subject of a £400,000 bid from Celtic but reports are suggesting that Hamilton have turned down the bid and with Celtic searching for a new manager Martinez is expected to step in and bring the hottest young talent in Scotland south to the Latics.

The young Scot, who is an Irish under 21 international, has already made 91 appearances for Hamilton, scoring 11 goals and he was identified by Martinez as a target for his previous club Swansea.

He was recently voted Scotlands young player of the year 2008/09

worbo
has he signed for us officially?? or are we just making the assumption that he will?? would b good to get some young talent in
d_manga_fanatic
Hamilton want 2 million for him. His agent Willie Mc Kay( remember him) says Mc Carthy only wants to play in the SPL at present
baskerville
well done roberto crack on building the team you wanted to build for the swans
james,jackarmy
He is Brilliant!
wafcmaz
i was being sarcastic tho he,s a traitor and wigan will soon see that roberto martinez will soon do the same you.l all love him and then he,l s**t on you aswel guaranteed
james,jackarmy
no he wont ***** on us because we are not a *****ty little cahmapionship club we are a club who want to achive something
lathamwafc
learn to spell championship before you try arguing bout it and it wasnt so long ago you were with us, yea you,v had success cant fault it but your not a succesful club in the premiership and your no bigger than us realy we,r a self sustained club you have debts, bottom of the average attendance in the premierleague and fighting against relegation most seasons yea you may have success but martinez will get bigger offers and he obviously just wants to keep furthering his career.
james,jackarmy
james,jackarmy I think people are reacting to the knocking that is being given out by the Swansea fans, we KNOW who we are and there are no pretentions at Wigan, as for the Championship it isnt THAT long ago we were in the bottom tier! Most Wigan fans followed your recent success and it was discussed here on Vital and on other Wigan boards with pride that Roberto was doing such a good job. As for debts and small crowds, firstly we have NO debt, Whelan owns the club and says that he will stand ALL the debt and it is his intentions to be self sufficient. Crowds? Who gives a toss, I go and have been going for a long, long time, thats what matters to me 100 or 100,000 so what, it bothers others but not us.
worbo
thats fair enough worbo and you sound like a proper fan, i was just reacting to lathamwafc stupid comment he made because there,s been a few wigan fans writing stupid comments on the swans vital pages.
james,jackarmy
@ the end of the day Martinez is just an employee he will go & manage were ever is best for his carear looks like its wigan @ present, any football fan expecting loyalty must be pretty dumb.
