The left winger is said to be high on Mick McCarthy’s wishlist, but the ex-Mackem will get no favours from Glenn Roeder. The youngster is getting high praise from Ireland, who have already blooded him at international level, but Roeder is in no mood to hand McCarthy a ‘freeby’.
The 21 year old is staying at St James’ Park. TRUST ME!
Roeder turned down Ipswich and Burnley last week when they came to SJP with the begging cap outstretched, and McCarthy can save his breath.
