It seems the transfer market has picked up rather dramatically this week.
James McFadden – unsettled at Birmingham
And there is continuing news in the press that Scottish forward James McFadden, of Birmingham City, may move this summer, and he’s being linked with both Celtic and Newcastle United.
The 27-year-old has played in the top Premier League for seven years, with Everton and Birmingham, after moving to the Merseyside club in 2003 from Motherwell.
The Scottish International is a popular player at St Andrew’s, since penning a three year deal two years ago, and his value is debatable, but with just one year left on his contract, around £3M seems a reasonable amount.
Neil Lennon, newly installed as manager at Glasgow Celtic, is trying to boost his squad to challenge for the Scottish Premier League, and is keen to add the Scot to his squad.
We think Chris Hughton will have the money to spend if he fancies James, and of course he is very experienced in the Premier League and could be a decent buy.
But it looks like James McFadden is another possibility of a player to arrive on Tyneside this summer, and there are quite a few more players the club have been linked with – just this week.
