The former Hamilton midfielder would not be drawn on his future beyond the end of the season and with a host ofclubs interested a future at the Latics may seem unlikely.
However McCarthy did reveal that he is presently enjoying his football with the club and he will assess things at the end of the season.
Speaking in the Daily Mail, the Irish international said: "Obviously, it’s good to see your name linked with big clubs, certain clubs, it’ s always nice but I am still a Wigan player and I will keep playing for Wigan until the end of the season.
"I have been linked with clubs here and there but I will keep working hard and see what the end of the season brings."
A host of the biggest clubs in the Premier League have been linked with McCarthy and a big money move is likely to be the transfer talk of the summer.
