Mick McCarthy refuses to comment on Jordan McGhee reports

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy refuses to comments on reports linking his side with Hearts defender Jordan McGhee.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy has refused to confirm whether his club are interested in signing Hearts defender Jordan McGhee.

The Championship side have been linked with a move for the 19-year-old, who enjoyed a breakthrough campaign last season to help Hearts return to the Scottish Premiership.

Despite confirming that he is keen to bring in a defender before the end of the transfer window, McCarthy decided against commenting on reports that Ipswich had bid £250,000 for McGhee.

"We're a bit thin on the ground with defenders to be honest with you, so if I could get a versatile defender from somewhere who could play left-back and centre-half, or right-back and centre-half, cover a couple of positions, that's the sort of player I'd be looking for," he is quoted as saying by the East Anglian Daily Times.

"He's somebody else's player and I don't talk about them."

Ipswich start the season by taking on Brentford at Griffin Park on Saturday.
