Paddy McCourt plots MLS move

Former Celtic winger Paddy McCourt is eager for a move to the MLS, according to STV Sport. 

McCourt, 29, who arrived in Glasgow from League of Ireland outfit Derry City in June 2008, is currently without a club following the expiration of his Celtic contract. 

He made 21 appearances last season as Neil Lennon's side secured a domestic double in the SPL's first season following the financial debacle that saw the Bhoys' fierce rivals Rangers demoted to the Scottish third division. 

Despite currently training at Hibernian and being heavily linked with a short-term spell under Pat Fenlon at Easter Road, McCourt is believed to be targeting a place on an MLS roster before the 2014 season gets underway.

With the league's mid-season transfer window open until August 8, he could be on the move sooner rather than later. 

Alternatively, he could be content to wait until it opens once again for pre-season in February. 

Should he wait for the 2014 window to complete his dream MLS move, he could well represent Hibs during the early stages of the current SPL campaign. 

Hibs are not the only club to be linked with McCourt's signature so far this summer. 

In July, it was widely believed that he would be moving south of the border, with Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson claiming he was close to sealing a deal to bring the player to London Road.
