Sun: Dons fail in Faddy move

Recommended Posts



ABERDEEN have failed with a sensational late bid to secure Scotland superstar James McFadden on a short-term deal.


SunSport can reveal that Dons boss Craig Brown sounded Faddy out last week over a possible move to Pittodrie.


He was left disappointed when McFadden turned down his offer.


The 28-year-old former Motherwell striker is out of contract at Birmingham City.


He's back fit after a cruciate knee injury kept him sidelined for much of last season. Faddy is a free agent after three years at Brum.


McFadden has just returned from two weeks' rehab in America and could still accept a new deal at St Andrew's, where he is training.


The striker can sign for a new club despite the close of transfer window but wants to make sure he's 100 per cent fit before committing to a new contract.



:-\ Aye ok

Craig Brown is happy with his Aberdeen FC squad

‘My team can climb up SPL’

ABERDEEN FC boss Craig Brown today claimed his side is ready to climb up the SPL table despite making no last-minute signings.


The transfer window closed on deadline day with no new arrivals at Pittodrie.


Aberdeen FC had been linked with an ambitious move for Scotland striker James McFadden. But the out-of-contract Birmingham City forward was said to have decided against a shock move to the North-east.


Probably just lifted straight from the Sun.

Club would have been shouting this from the roof tops if  this was true.


Indeed Jute, overpowering smell of shite about this but as Kow says, we still could go for him, not that he would even consider it but the paper has given him a wee bit of exposure to clubs willing to pay him.


As far as Brown is being happy with his squad is concerned, fuck.
