McCarthy is among a host of players to have been linked with a switch to Old Trafford this summer, having caught the eye with his performances for Everton during the past season.

The 23-year-old only moved to Goodison Park from Wigan Athletic last September and Keane, assistant manager for Republic of Ireland, does not see any need for him to leave.

Keane believes McCarthy is at the right place at this stage of his career and has advised the midfielder to keep performing well for Roberto Martinez's side.

"He's only been at Everton two minutes," Keane told the Irish Times.

"He's obviously making good progress but I'm pretty sure that with Manchester United there'll be talks of lots of players going there at the moment but James is at a good club in Everton.

"He's had a decent couple of seasons and if he keeps progressing then who knows but I'm sure he's happy where he is."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
