With Liverpool after Matt Jarvis and Everton keen on Kevin Doyle, Mick McCarthy has given out a hands-off warning.

But as hands-off warnings go, this one wasn’t great and is more of a hands-off-unless-you-offer-big-bucks-and-then-we-will-talk warning.

‘If someone wants to try and take Matt and Kevin off us, any of our top stars, it is not going to be easy for them – and they are going to be expensive.’ McCarthy told the Daily Mail.

He continued by trying to clarify his stance: ‘That’s not saying they are for sale. They are not for sale.

‘But neither was Cristiano Ronaldo a couple of years ago, neither were Fernando Torres and Andy Carroll this season – but £50 million and £35 million changed that a little bit!’

So basically make a decent offer and we may well cash in.

Which of course is the way things work in football, so are the comments really a hands-off plea or more of a come and get them cry?
