Blues set to seal Faddy deal

Blues set to seal Faddy deal

Everton striker James McFadden is expected to undergo a medical with Birmingham on Friday and, assuming it uncovers no problems, the player will join the club.

On Thursday afternoon, Everton announced they had accepted a bid from Birmingham City for the 24-year-old Scotland international - thought to be around £5.5million.

However, Sky Sports News then reported that McFadden ended talks without reaching an agreement and his agent Willie McKay has claimed another club have now expressed an interest.

But it now appears those reports were wide of the mark and McFadden will join in time for the clash with Chelsea at the weekend, along with left-back David Murphy, who completed his signing from Hibs on Thursday.

Second bid accepeted, and faddy wanted an 6 million release clause in his contract if you go down, which you wouldn't give him

If that's the reason then not accepting it (for now) is ridiculous, but there's still plenty of time to go here.

Can't see him going to the other interested party, so you just need to up your offer for him!

Genuine question, who's the bigger club? Birmingham or Everton? Do you think McFadden witl be guaranteed (or as close to a guarantee as possible) a start each week. I would tend to think so as I feel he's a McLeish favourite.

He would get more action than he does at the moment.
