McClean wants to end career at Derry


West Brom winger James McClean says he intends to end his career in the League of Ireland with his hometown club Derry City.

McClean, 28, spent three years at Derry City before moving to Sunderland in 2011, and, after a two-year spell at Wigan Athletic, signed for West Brom in 2015 in a £1.5m deal.

The 51-time capped Ireland international, who signed a new contract at the Hawthorns last December until the summer of 2019, has an option for a further year but hinted that he could return to the Brandywell when that deal ends in 2020.

"I always said that I’d start my career at Derry and I want to finish at Derry," McClean told Jarlath Regan's Irishman Abroad podcast. 

"What age I go back at, I don't know but I want to go back at an age when I'm actually able to give something.

 "I don't want to go back for show and I can hardly move or offer anything. I don't want youngsters running by me and I can't keep up.

"I'm a home boy. I have always said I want to live back in Derry when I retire. For me it would be ideal to play my last season or two at Derry."
