Imps end their interest in McClean

26 November 2009 06:39
The Imps' bid to sign the Under-21 international had already hit problems because of Derry's financial problems and McClean has now returned home after just two days' training with the League Two club.

"James's father phoned me and said he was homesick and won't be leaving Ireland," said Lincoln manager Chris Sutton.

"It's unfortunate because we've been impressed with what we've seen of him.

"Historically some of the Irish players who have come over have struggled to settle.

"He does come from a big family but I thought two days was a little short, I'd have expected him to maybe give it a week."
