McFadden to stay put

16 August 2006 07:31
Everton forward James McFadden has agreed a new contract to extend his stay at Goodison Park beyond the end of the coming campaign. The 23-year-old Scotland international has been with the Toffees since September 2003, having moved to Merseyside for £1.25million from Motherwell. McFadden told the club's official website: "It's good that it's sorted. "I've always wanted to stay and it's finalised now and hopefully I can get on with my football at Everton. "Every time there's speculation that I'm going somewhere, but I'm quite happy now and just about to sign a new contract at Everton. "I hope I can break into the team. Andy Johnson has come in and done really well, he looks sharp and can score goals. "Hopefully I can get in, I want to be in the team and I don't mind who I'm alongside as long as I'm playing." McFadden has scored ten goals in 97 appearances for Everton.
