McCarthy happy at Everton amid Man Utd claims
The midfielder has talked up the prospect of moving to Manchester United in the future.
"The fans have been brilliant with me since day one. It wasn't easy coming to a big club like this and trying to adapt but at least I knew the style of play," said the 23-year-old in the Liverpool Echo.
"The size of the club though meant there was always going to be pressure, but I've settled in and everyone made me feel so welcome.
"I'm enjoying life here. I feel part of the family. It's a real family club and it's great to be involved in. It's been a year since I came but it feels a lot longer than that."
