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.

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.
