With all the speculation flying about that Mick McCarthy could be on his way to West Brom for the manager’s job, he’s finally spoken about it.
The Ipswich Town boss says he’s not heard anything from West Brom, who have been linked with a move for him and reiterated that he will be seeing out his contract and staying at Portman Road for the remainder of the season.
Asked whether he had heard anything from the Championship-bound Baggies, who parted company with Alan Pardew at the weekend, McCarthy said: “I guess you have to ask that question, don’t you? But in asking it you know there’s as much chance of me telling you as me flying out this room on a jetpack, even if I had.
“But no, I haven’t. It’s nice to be linked. Is it just convenient? I’ve just announced that I’m coming out of work, West Brom are getting relegated and apparently they’re looking for an experienced Championship manager.
“Well, I cover those bases, but that doesn’t mean to say that they’re going to come and ask me.”
