McFadden makes Goodison return

BY foxsports • October 17, 2011

The Scotland international forward has been without a club since his summer departure from Birmingham, who were relegated to the Championship last season. He had trained with Wolves, and both Mick McCarthy's side and Celtic were keen on signing the 28-year-old. However, McFadden has opted to link up again with Everton manager David Moyes on Merseyside in the hope of reviving a career hit by injury. It is understood Everton have signed the Scot until the end of the season. McFadden originally joined the Blues from Motherwell in 2003 and scored 11 times in 109 appearances. After moving to the midlands for £5million the Scot scored 13 times in 82 games until a cruciate knee ligament injury curtailed his involvement last season. He was released following Blues' relegation in May but is fit again and will provide another attacking option and experience for manager David Moyes.
