James McFadden: Opted to stay with Motherwell

McFadden returned in February to the club at which he started his career, agreeing a deal until the end of the season after his contract at Sunderland expired.

He impressed enough to secure a fresh one-year stay and hopes he could resurrect his Scotland career after three years out of the picture.

"I had a few offers over the summer but it didn't feel right," McFadden said. "I'd have had to uproot and take my family away and I wasn't prepared to do that.

"I've turned down better offers financially. Once that was taken out of the equation it came down to the fact that I knew I would enjoy it here and I know I'll play if I'm fit and doing well.

"I get to play every week and I've got a good relationship with the club and the fans so it was a no-brainer."

On the prospect of returning to the national side, he added: "If I'm playing well and playing the way I can play then one of my aims is to get back in the squad.

"As long as I do my part and play well and play every week it will be up to the manager."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
