James McFadden: Could get new deal at Sunderland

James McFadden: Could get new deal at Sunderland

The Scottish international joined Sunderland last year on a short-term deal, but that came to an end in January.

Black Cats boss Martin O'Neill was keen to keep him, but he did not stand in his way when Alex McLeish at Nottingham Forest showed an interest and was ready to offer him a long-term deal.

However, McLeish failed to finalise a deal with McFadden and has since left the City Ground - so a move back to Sunderland is on the cards.

Black Cats boss O'Neill confirmed to the Sunderland Echo: "We let James' situation run past the transfer deadline and I think he went down to Nottingham Forest before McLeish departed.

"But obviously events have changed that situation and I don't know what's happened since then.

"I'll speak to the agent though and see where we stand."

As 29-year-old McFadden is a free agent, he can re-join Sunderland outside the window.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
