James McFadden: Could be set to join Celtic on a free transfer

The former Everton and Birmingham forward impressed during a short spell back at his first club Motherwell during the second half of the 2012/13 season.

The 28-year-old scored five goals in 13 appearances for the Fir Park outfit but is now a free agent again after his deal expired at the end of the campaign.

Stuart McCall's side are believed to be keen on a permanent deal for the player but face competition from SPL rivals Celtic.

The Scottish champions have been long-term admirers of the Scotland international and now look set to convert that interest into a concrete offer.

However, a number of English clubs are also believed to be planning moves to hijack the deal and bring McFadden back south of the border instead.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
