According a weekend report in Times Live, McCarthy’s business manager, Rob Moore, said that his client is pondering offers from various MLS clubs.

“There are options in England and elsewhere in Europe, but I don’t think he would rule out an interesting move to an MLS club. It would be an opportunity to contribute to the game on another continent. We’ve had one or two discussions, and we’ll see what happens in coming weeks.”

The 33-year old, has allegedly been told by West Ham that he does not have a future with the club.
