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.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
