James McFadden says he won’t rule out any move after expressing his gratitude to Motherwell for providing him with training facilities this summer.
The 29-year-old is taking part in the Steelmen’s pre-season programme after being released by Everton at the end of last season.
McFadden was a fans’ favourite at Fir Park during his spell there between 2000 and 2003.
And although he is in no rush to decide his future, the Scotland ace has thanked his former side for helping him out.
He told the Scottish Sun: “Down south is still my preferred destination, but I will consider anything as long as it’s the right thing for myself and my family. They are my priority.
“I will train with Motherwell and we’ll see what happens. Everything has to be considered.
“I’m not saying I want to go back to Motherwell and I’m not saying I won’t go back.
“I have asked if I could go in and train with them and that’s as far as things have gone.
“If anyone wants to talk to me while I’m there then obviously I’m not going to be rude.”
Stuart McCall’s side are preparing for the Champions League qualifiers and McFadden says that will only help him get ready for the new campaign.
He added: “I’m very grateful to Motherwell for this opportunity. With them preparing for the Champions League qualifiers there’s no doubt the training will be intense.
“That gives me a chance to train properly and ensure that I am ready for the new season.”
