WOLVES READY TO PUT BITE ON FREE MAN FADD
WOLVES are ready to open talks over a deal for Scotland international James McFadden.
The 28-year-old free agent (pictured) is in his second week of training with the Molineux club as he attempts to fight his way back from a cruciate ligament injury which has sidelined him for a year.
Wolves boss Mick McCarthy is aware of interest from elsewhere in the player, whose deal at Birmingham expired at the end of last season, but revealed nothing has yet been agreed.
McCarthy said: “We will have a discussion with his agent.
“I am sure there is other interest – there’s never been a player yet where there’s only been one club in for him.
“But nothing is happening as yet. He’s training fine and we will just see what happens.”
McCarthy is keen to add to his attacking options with Sylvan Ebanks-Blake currently recovering from medial ligament damage.
“Sylvan is still injured. I haven’t an idea when he will be fit,” added McCarthy.
“Hopefully it will be as soon as possible, but he’s not training with the squad yet at all.”
