Former Scotland forward James McFadden has been told he must wait until the end of the MLS regular season to discover if he has won a move to the United States.

The 32-year-old had been training with two-time old club Motherwell throughout the summer and up until last month before a trial opened up for him across the Atlantic with the Philadelphia Union.

It was a period where McFadden did well and it appeared that a decision on whether or not he had done enough to impress head coach Jim Curtin would be forthcoming last week.

However, it has now emerged the man who is so fondly remembered by many in Scotland - most importantly for his strike against France in the Parc des Princes in 2007 - must wait until after Union's final regular season game this Sunday night against Orlando City.

Curtin said: "We will sit down at the end of the year after Orlando and make some evaluation on that.

"He did a great job when he was in, he did everything he could. He was fit, he played at his highest level possible so he showed very well for himself.

"I had a good talk with him at the end and told him where we were at in terms of our roster. Obviously there is no flexibility now to sign anyone but he did a good job in his short time here here, did everything he could and we will have a discussion after the Orlando game with him about what makes sense moving forward."
