McFadden re-signs for Everton

Moyes has decided to offer James McFadden a new dealEverton have re-signed James McFadden three years after he left Goodison Park to join Birmingham City after the club decided not offer him a new deal.

The Scotland international has been without a club since leaving St Andrews in the summer but will now head back to Merseyside to link up with Toffee’s boss David Moyes once again.

A clutch of teams were interested in acquiring McFadden’s services and 28-year-old spending stints training at Wolves and Celtic but he decided to head back to Everton despite Mick McCarthy and Neil Lennon both being  to sign him.

Moyes suffered a frustrating transfer window with the perilous financial situation at the club restricting him to free agents and loan signings but the signing of the Scot will add an extra class to his forward line.

It will also be a chance to resurrect a career that has had plenty of ups and downs with the striker suffering a succession of injuries in the last few years restricting his progress.

McFadden spent five years in his previous spell with Everton playing 109 games, scoring 11 goals between 2003 and 2005 prior to joining Birmingham for £5 million.

He missed the entire 2010/11 campaign after suffering a serious knee injury with Birmingham opting not to extend his stay in the Midlands after they were relegated from the Premier League.
