SAFC Paper Talk #3
As expected, Northern Irish full-back McCartney is wanted by West Ham, where he has spent the season on-loan.
The out-of-favour defender has been out of the first-team picture for a couple of seasons now and looks set to complete a cut-price move to Upton Park.
Meanwhile, Richardson is being linked with a move to Everton.
The former Manchester United utility man has been in and out of the side this term owing to injury, but remains an important first-team figure.
The former England international is subject of interest from the Goodison Park club as they look to add depth to their squad.
With 12 months to run on his current contract, Martin O'Neill might just choose to cash in if the interest is really there.
