Forest set to land Sunderland attacker McFadden

Nottingham Forest are set to snap up James McFadden from Sunderland.

The Daily Mail says McFadden is poised to join Nottingham Forest on loan, despite agreeing a deal to stay at the Stadium of Light until the end of the season.

Black Cats manager Martin O’Neill is keen for the 29-year-old former Scotland forward, who joined Sunderland on a free transfer earlier in the season, to play more football.

McFadden has hardly featured for Sunderland since agreeing the short-term deal but did enough to earn a contract until June.

The former Everton striker will be reunited with Alex McLeish, his manager at Birmingham and for Scotland, and is expected to agree an initial month-long loan at the City Ground.
