He deserves a chance under Koeman.
He got injured in pre season so hasn't had the chance to show Koeman what he's got.
I get the feeling Koeman would like him as a player.
Although, maybe we would be better off getting rid of both Besic and McCarthy and spending that money on a quality centre mid.
This is a really good option in my opinion. McCarthy's had flashes of excellent but never produced regularly. Besic looks like a really clever footballer, but was sometimes trying to be too clever - but I'll put that down to youth.
Unfortunately, I don't feel either are going to take us forward so this should be on the cards.
I would be happy for the lad if Besic got another year with us - either going out on loan or trying to break the first team - but sometimes it just doesn't work for a player and the price of McCarthy plus Besic would probably make a decent dent in a very good replacement.
