Reports from north of the border claim that McCarthy wants to move back to Glasgow to be close to his father who is unwell, and wants a move to Celtic over other clubs who are interested.

McCarthy signed for £13.5m on deadline day in 2013 under Roberto Martinez but has failed to live up to his price tag over the last two seasons.
