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.

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.
