Jamaica star Garath McCleary a target for Premier League clubs - sources

Garath McCleary's impressive summer displays for Jamaica have earned attention from Premier League sides.

A host of Premier League clubs are eyeing a move for CONCACAF Gold Cup star Garath McCleary, sources have told ESPN FC.

McCleary, 28, has been in sparkling form in the Copa America and Gold Cup for Jamaica this summer, scoring two goals to help The Reggae Boyz reach the quarterfinals of the Gold Cup.

The Reading winger's performances on the international stage have not gone unnoticed in England, with several Premier League sides long-term admirers.

The likes of Newcastle, West Brom and Premier League newcomers Bournemouth and Watford are all weighing up moves for McCleary as they look to bolster their attacking options.

McCleary endured a frustrating six months on the sidelines last year after he played the final two months of the 2013-14 season with a broken back and was forced to undergo surgery.

The winger battled back to fitness and made 30 appearances for Reading last season, scoring in their FA Cup semifinal defeat to Arsenal.

Reading signed McCleary from Nottingham Forest in 2012 and are keen to keep the player, but are bracing themselves for bids following his recent exploits for club and country.
