Midweek Sport - - TV GUIDE - By MATT JOHN­SON

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.”
