The 31-year-old began his career at Fir Park before moving to England to play for Everton, Birmingham and Sunderland.

McFadden returned to the Steelmen in February 2013 and signed on again last summer, starting 23 times during the latest campaign and scoring five times as Stuart McCall's side finished runners-up in the Scottish Premiership.

McCall told the club's website: "I had James in last Friday and we had a discussion about the future and everything was very amicable.

"I cannot speak highly enough of his attitude, desire and professionalism whilst he was here, particularly when going through a difficult patch or when he was injured.

"In the past, we could possibly have used James in a number of positions, but I think he is at his best when played through the middle as a striker.

"We have five different options in that position and need to utilise the budget in other areas of the squad."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

I

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
