James McFadden: Began his career with Motherwell

The 30-year-old, who began his career at Fir Park, has agreed a one-year contract with the club.

Having spent a decade south of the border with two spells at Everton, Birmingham and Sunderland, McFadden returned to Motherwell in February on a short-term deal and scored five goals in 13 appearances.

He is Motherwell's seventh signing of the summer following the arrival of Paul Lawson, Iain Vigurs, John Sutton, Fraser Kerr, Gunnar Nielsen and Stephen McManus.

McFadden, who has been capped 48 times by Scotland, told MFC TV: "I am really pleased to have it all sorted.

"When the manager asked me to go to Spain, I made up my mind then that I was going to come back and I am really looking forward to the season ahead.

"My relationship with the supporters and how they are with me certainly played a part in my decision.

"It's familiar surroundings; obviously I really enjoyed it last season, I hope the fans will be happy and I am happy to get it all done."

Chief executive Leeann Dempster added: "Obviously we are thrilled and delighted to have James on board again.

"He is an iconic figure amongst our supporters and made a significant contribution at a vital time last season.

"The board have been very pleased with how the summer recruitment plan has gone thus far and are still hopeful of adding some more new faces in the near future."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
