Adam Johnson injury prompts Martin O'Neill caution
Adam Johnson injury prompts Martin O'Neill caution.
Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill has said he will not rush winger Adam Johnson back to first-team duty following a thigh problem.
Meanwhile the Black Cats have free agent James McFadden training with the first-team squad. McFadden, 29, was released by Everton at the end of last season after signing a short-term deal in October 2011. "He's been here for a few days, he has no club, he's out of contract," O'Neill added. "He's been training with Motherwell to keep himself fit, and he's been here for a few days. "We'll see, there's been no promises made on either side, after a day or two working with me he may not fancy it. "He's a very decent footballer, he was allowed to leave Everton, and we've perhaps got a smaller squad so he's definitely worth looking at."
