New Sunderland forward James McFadden believes that he now has a "good chance" to play more first-team football after moving to the Stadium of Light.

New Sunderland signing James McFadden has expressed his 'delight' in securing a short-term deal at the Stadium of Light.

The 29-year-old completed his expected move to the North East club on a free transfer following weeks of training with the Premier League outfit.

"I'm delighted," McFadden told the club's official website. "This is a good chance to get back playing football and hopefully earn a longer-term contract.

"I've enjoyed my short time here so far and hopefully I can get the chance to play games and do well. I already knew some of the lads but the dressing room has been very welcoming. I felt settled from my first day so it's been good."

McFadden was released by Everton at the end of the season.
