Benni to consider US move
Johannesburg - Benni McCarthy could be on the verge of securing a move abroad, according to his agent Rob Moore.
The South African international has struggled to make an impact at West Ham since joining the club a year ago from Blackburn Rovers.
Subject to much ridicule over his well-publicised girth, McCarthy is naturally desperate to start playing regularly again.
The 33-year-old former Ajax, Celta Vigo and Porto striker could make a switch to the United States with a move back to Europe also reportedly also on the cards.
Moore told the Sowetan: "He is frustrated at only being given cameo appearances. We're looking at several possibilities. Benni wants to play. He's not a guy who sits on the bench and collects his cheque.
"He has maintained his correct weight since October. There are options in England and elsewhere in Europe, but I don't think he would rule out an interesting move to an MLS club.
"It would be an opportunity to contribute to the game on another continent. We've had one or two discussions, and we'll see what happens in coming weeks."
McCarthy is yet to score for the Hammers in 13 appearances but was on target 37 times in 109 Premier League appearances for Blackburn.
