JAMES MCFADDEN has revealed his intentions to play abroad following his departure from Queen of the South.
The former Motherwell icon made 15 appearances for Queen of the South this season before deciding that he had to find a new challenge.
“I’ve made no secret of the fact I’d love to play abroad,” McFadden told BBC Scotland’s Sportsound.
“I had a couple of opportunities when I was younger, but it wasn’t the right time for me, but it’s something I wish I had done and I’d be up for it now.”
The 34-year-old who scored a wonder-goal in the Euro 2008 qualification match versus France in Paris has revealed that he was sought after my the French.
“I had a chance to go to France when I was younger, just before I was leaving Everton for Birmingham.
“My second child was on the way, so it wasn’t great timing. I wish I could’ve done it.
“I’ve had a great career and a great life, so I’m not complaining, but you need to think about these things before you do things like that.”
McFadden, who started his career at Motherwell and had spells at Everton, Birmingham and Sunderland before returning to the ‘Well, has revealed that he is open to offers.
I’m open to offers. I’ve enjoyed it. I got fit and lost a good bit of weight in body fat and I never missed a day’s training.
“I was getting as fit as I’ve been in the last few years. I think I have something to offer.”
