James McFadden has been training with Motherwell in Spain

McFadden, a free agent since his short-term deal at Fir Park expired in May, spent last week training with Motherwell in Spain but was excused for Saturday's goalless friendly at Doncaster.

McCall told MFC TV: "The most James would have got is the last 15 minutes and would it have been worth it?

"He has not missed a session since he joined us and has worked hard.

"He'll be in on Monday morning hopefully to get things tied up and look to play a part in the game on Tuesday against Newcastle."

McCall remains hopeful of securing a deal for another Scotland international, Stephen McManus, who spent last week with Hibernian after training with Motherwell the previous week.
