James McFadden: Forward set for new Motherwell deal

Former Everton and Birmingham forward McFadden, a free agent since his short-term deal at Fir Park expired in May, spent last week training with Motherwell in Spain.

However the 30-year-old did not play in Saturday's goalless draw with Doncaster in their pre-season friendly at the Keepmoat Stadium.

McCall told MFC TV: "The most James would have got is the last 15 minutes and would it have been worth it?

"He has not missed a session since he joined us and has worked hard.

"He'll be in on Monday morning hopefully to get things tied up and look to play a part in the game on Tuesday against Newcastle."

McCall remains hopeful of securing a deal for another Scotland international, Stephen McManus, who spent last week with Hibernian after training with Motherwell the previous week.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
