Tottenham will have to pay Wigan £15million to secure the services of highly sought after James McCarthy.

The Republic of Ireland international is considered to be one of the finest midfielders outside the Premier League’s top five and seems certain to move on after the Latics’ relegation to the Championship.

Spurs lead the queue to sign the 22-year-old but will have to pay £15million, the Mirror reports.

McCarthy has been at the DW Stadium for four years after arriving for £1.1million from Hamilton Academical.
