Free agent James McFadden could be set to join Sunderland after deciding not to sign for Wolves.

The Scottish striker was released by Birmingham in the summer, having suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury, and has since been on trial at Molineux.

Wolves are keen to sign the 28-year-old, but Mick McCarthy has revealed there have been 'other offers' - one of which is reported to be from Sunderland.

According to the Daily Mail, Steve Bruce is ready to have talks with McFadden in the hope of bringing him to the Stadium of Light.

Sunderland, meanwhile, have endured a difficult start to the season - winning just once in their opening seven league fixtures.


However, Bruce is confident he was enough talent in his Sunderland squad, and has urged Black Cats fans to give summer signings Connor Wickham and Ji Dong-won time to settle in.

"We keep saying this and we know we haven't got time, but we have made 10 or 11 changes [to the squad over the summer], so it's important for all 10, 11 [to have time to gel]," said the Sunderland boss.

"[Stephane] Sessegnon and [Nicklas] Bendtner for a start - they have only been with each other for two or three weeks and they looked very, very good on Saturday.

"But certainly, Connor and Ji are in my thoughts. Their time might be just around the corner too, so let's hope when they get their chance, they can give everybody a lift too."
