Sunderland complete the signing of James McFadden on a short-term deal after the free agent spent a number of weeks training with the Black Cats.

Sunderland have confirmed that former Everton forward James McFadden has put pen to paper on a short-term deal at the club.

The 29-year-old has been expected to join the North East outfit after training with the Black Cats for a while following his release from the Toffees in the summer.

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill confirmed yesterday that negotiations were ongoing and it has been announced today that McFadden has secured a contract that reports have claimed is for three months.

McFadden will wear the number 11 shirt.
