FORMER Sunderland frontman James McFadden is reportedly a target for SPL champions Celtic.

McFadden netted five goals in 13 appearances for boyhood club Motherwell last season after Sunderland opted against extending the 30-year-old’s short-term deal at the Stadium of Light.

But Motherwell have been unable to tie McFadden down to a new contract and speculation today suggests that has alerted Celtic to his availability on a free transfer.

Celtic are long-term admirers of McFadden, dating back to ex-Sunderland manager Martin O’Neill’s tenure at Parkhead.
