Saints are on the hunt for a new shot-stopper following Paulo Gazzaniga’s loan move to Rayo Vallecano and McCarthy is in their sights.

Palace currently have Wayne Hennessey, Julian Speroni and Steve Mandanda, as well as McCarthy, as options in goal and as such are likely to be open to offers for the former Reading man.

Southampton are reportedly preparing a bid of around £2million for the 26-year-old but Palace are likely to demand a similar fee to the £3.5m they forked out to snare McCarthy from QPR last summer.
