Former Scotland forward James McFadden is set to find out in the next 48 hours whether he has done enough to land a deal with Philadelphia Union.

The 32-year-old is in his second week on trial with the MLS outfit and Union manager Jim Curtin admits that he is close to making a decision after being impressed by the 48-times capped internationalist in training.

Curtin, who has former Rangers favourite Maurice Edu in his squad, is keen to add fresh faces after watching his team miss out on the league play-offs.

Former Motherwell, Everton, Birmingham City and Sunderland playmaker McFadden is a free agent after leaving St Johnstone at the end of last season.

Curtin said: “He’s done well in training, you can tell that he has quality.

“He’s played at the highest level. He’s a guy that’s been good in training.

“He provides an intensity level that is good for some of our younger guys to see.

“No decision has been made. We’ll probably take until the end of the week and then discuss it, but he’s done very well.”
