Not heard much of him to be honest, but he's available on a free and apparently us and Hull are after him. Could just be agent talk, but it sounds like he wants to leave from those quotes.

Plays centre mid doesn't he? Haven't really seen him play so not much comment from me other than do we really need him? Would he be an improvement on what we currently have, because we don't need depth in centre mid?

Box-to box type to play alongside Jedinak. Just what we need in my view.

Had a few injury problems if I remember - think it caused him to miss most of their Premier League season. Anyone know why he left Burnley...just out of contract or was he actually released?

Article says he didn't want to discuss a new contract, but they'd like him to stay if he wanted to.

I really rate him; big, strong and an aerial threat, yet a proper footballer. Can start attacks but isn't afraid to put his foot in either.

Seem to remember him being fairly decent when playing against us. Wouldn't be disappointed if we signed him although I don't know if he'd be starting every week.

This. I've never seen McCann play, but a box-to-box player with a bit of pace is just what we need in midfield.

I agree with you but we lack pace in all departments, IMO.
