The 33-year old former Bafana Bafana star is still struggling to gain regular game time with the Hammers, who are presently down the bottom end of the English Premiership table, and is reportedly keen on a move to Major League Soccer.
According a weekend report in Times Live, McCarthy's business manager, Rob Moore, said that his client is pondering offers from various MLS clubs.
"He is frustrated at only being given cameo appearances. We're looking at several possibilities. Benni wants to play. He's not a guy who sits on the bench and collects his check," Moore said.
"There are options in England and elsewhere in Europe, but I don't think he would rule out an interesting move to an MLS club. It would be an opportunity to contribute to the game on another continent. We've had one or two discussions, and we'll see what happens in coming weeks."
