Hamilton Academical's James McCarthy Undergoes Medical At Wigan Athletic - Report

James McCarthy seems to have made his choice as to which Premier League club he will be moving to this afternoon, as Sky Sports News are reporting that he is undergoing a medical ahead of a possible move to Wigan Athletic.

Wolverhampton Wanderers had also agreed a fee for the Scottish-born Irish international, but it seems that the attractions of working with new Wigan manager Roberto Martinez have outweighed those of joining the significant Irish contingent at Molineux.

It has been reported in various British media outlets that a fee of around £2 million has been agreed between the clubs, but Accies boss Billy Reid could find little comfort in that when he told BBC Sport, "It's an understatement to say that losing a player like James is a blow."

Should McCarthy complete the move he will join former Hamilton team-mate Brian Easton at a Premier League club in Lancashire, with the defender having signed for Burnley this week.
