Motherwell’s McCall urges English target Hutchinson to remain

Motherwell boss Stuart McCall believes it would be careless of Shaun Hutchinson to up and leave the club at this present moment.

Motherwell boss Stuart McCall believes it would be careless of Shaun Hutchinson to up and leave the club at this present moment.

The 22-year old Newcastle-born centre-back is out of contract at the end of the season and is being linked with a shift to England next summer but McCall feels it would be better for his development to remain at Fir Park for the time being.

"I know he is enjoying himself here and he needs to look at the bigger picture too. His agent will be saying it's time to move on but I don't think it is yet," McCall told the Sunday Mail.

"I spoke to Shaun in the close season and told him I felt there is still some development in him.

"Obviously I want to keep him but Motherwell is a selling club and if he keeps improving there will come a stage when he is sold on.

"But we want him to sign this extended deal.”

McCall added: "He also has to look at the bigger picture, though. For example, Jamie Murphy has gone to Sheffield United and is not playing at the moment.

"Tom Hateley was three or four months without a club. Steve Jennings has only just signed for Tranmere.

"Mark Reynolds is another one. He went to Sheffield Wednesday. Obviously he is now doing well at Aberdeen but he never played at Wednesday.”
