QPR have warned Crystal Palace that Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy will only be allowed to leave if the £3.5 million release clause in his contract is met…
McCarthy has made it clear his future lies away from QPR, following first-choice keeper Rob Green’s decision to commit his future to the club. Palace lodged an initial £2m bid for the 25-year-old as a potential replacement for Wayne Hennessey, who is attracting attention from West Brom. But QPR insist they will not accept anything less than the £3.5m release clause. McCarthy himself is desperate for game time and previously turned down an approach from Liverpool for that reason. Harry Redknapp described him as a future England keeper and he is unlikely to embrace a move that will see him as cover for Palace’s current number one, Julian Speroni. Jul 16 - 7:34 AM

Opportunities for goalkeeper Alex McCarthy have been limited since the summer signing arrived from Reading in August but the reserve stopper was afforded his first Premier League start against Liverpool in game week eight with Rob Green side-lined because of illness.

After a solid performance between the sticks Harry Redknapp was faced with a potential tricky decision on whether to stick with his number two keeper or revert back to Rob Green. However a training ground injury ruled Alex McCarthy [thigh] out of game against Aston Villa match paving the way for Rob Green to make a quick return having missed one match due to tonsillitis. During the interim period Brian Murphy is likely to take his place in the match-day squad.
