"First of all I don't know what Keane said about the situation, I'm not interested in his comments", Koeman said.
McCarthy, 26, has missed the whole of the new campaign with a knee problem and has been blighted by injury problems during Koeman's reign at Goodison Park. We had a great time, with big players and we dropped quality.
"That's good for him, that's good for us and let's hope that he will be totally fit and available for next weekend".
Speaking ahead of Everton's Premier League tie with Brighton this weekend, Koeman dismissed the links, while also giving his opinions on what he feels the current problems are surrounding the Dutch national team. He's now back, they did a good thing not to use him and we like to bring him back. We've got three games now in the space of eight days or so, so it is important for us to start well and get a good result against Brighton.
Koeman will have a decision to make in defence, with Ashley Williams under pressure following mistakes for Everton and Wales and Phil Jagielka now fit again following a hamstring injury.
However, for Ireland's most recent worldwide week McCarthy was once again called upon despite having yet to play a game this term for the Toffees. We did not have a normal pre-season because we had to play really fast, really competitive to qualify for Europe.
