Adkins: Reading won't sell McCarthy

Reading manager Nigel Adkins says there is no reason highly-rated goalkeeper Alex McCarthy needs to leave the club this summer, despite their relegation from the Premier League.

Alex McCarthy could be out for the rest of the season through injury
Alex McCarthy has two years left on his Reading contract

McCarthy, 23, has been one of the few Reading players to impress during a disappointing campaign with a full international call-up from England manager Roy Hodgson this week showing just how much his performances have caught the eye.

In an interview with Sky Sports, McCarthy refused to rule out a departure from Reading to stay in the Premier League and fulfil his international ambitions.

He said: "It is where the best players are. It gives you more opportunity of playing for the national team.

"But I have still got two years left at Reading. They are my club at the moment so we will have to see what the future holds."

Fulham and Liverpool have already been linked with summer moves for the player but Adkins says that Reading can match his ambitions.

"Alex works really hard, he’s in the first team and we want him to still be with us," Adkins said.

"There’s no reason for him to be going anywhere else. All internationals will gain interest, so people will be interested in him but the good thing for us is that he is under contract for another two years.

"He’s ambitious, like we all are here at Reading. I think he can see that ambition and we’ll keep moving forward and react to situations if they ever arise."

Adkins also believes that McCarthy can continue to get international recognition outside of the top division, insisting that playing first-team football is the most important thing.

"Yes he can be called up in the Championship, that’s been proved this year with Jack Butland,” Adkins added. "There’s a pool of goalkeepers but it’s important that they are playing.

"Alex has got to be playing regular football and he’s got a great opportunity to do that here at Reading.

"Everybody’s value will increase, especially if they have just been called up to the international squad.

"We’re not really looking to sell Alex. He’s come through our system and it’s fantastic for him and the club.

"Maybe playing in the top flight would make him more noticed every week, but if he’s sat on the bench he won’t be noticed.

"He’s a player we really admire, we are not actively looking to do anything except progress his career here at Reading."
