Clark Courting McCourt?

with thanks to Archie from bcfc.freeforums.org who alerted me to this story

Northern Irish left winger Paddy McCourt has been linked with a move to Birmingham City after his release by Celtic this summer. The 29-year-old had played 66 league appearances for the Bhoys, scoring nine goals in five seasons before his release from Parkhead this summer.

The Derry Journal has linked McCourt strongly to a move to Blues after McCourt reportedly visited St Andrews last week. However, the Derry-born winger is also linked with moves to Aberdeen and the MLS.

McCourt started his professional career with Rochdale in England before playing for FAI sides Shamrock Rovers and Derry City. He moved to Celtic in the summer of 2008, choosing his boyhood club over overtures from Norwich and West Bromwich Albion.

With Blues lacking a natural left-sided midfielder after the departure of loanee Shane Ferguson it will be interesting to see if this goes any further; at 29 McCourt is considerably older than most of Clark’s other signings but as a free agent there is a chance that the Northern Irish international could be snapped up.
