Giants reject McCarthy trade request…but if past history is anything to go by, it may well happen anyway.
The Giants released a statement today regarding McCarthy’s request, despite categorically denying that McCarthy wanted out of the club last night with this tweet.
Despite media speculation, the GIANTS can confirm @CamMcCarthy4 has not requested a trade and is under contract until the end of 2017.
“The manager of Cameron McCarthy, Colin Young, has today formally enquired about a trade,” the statement read.
“The GIANTS have categorically rejected this request.
“McCarthy, 20, kicked 35 goals in 20 games for the GIANTS this season and is contracted until the end of 2017.”
However, this time last year the Giants released a similar statement regarding the trade request of former GWS forward Tom Boyd, before he eventually made his way to the Western Bulldogs.
