Everton are set to sign Spartak Moscow midfielder Aiden McGeady, with the 27-year-old agreeing a pre-contract to join Everton in the summer, according to the Daily Mail.
The former Celtic winger left the Scottish giants for the Russian capital in 2010 but now looks set to leave following a dressing room bust-up with Spartak coach Valery Karpin back in November.
McGeady was accused of poor physical condition and a lack of motivation by Karpin, who also claimed the 27-year-old former Celtic star had a negative attitude to training.
Toffees boss Roberto Martinez has tried to sign McGeady twice in the past but has failed both times in his efforts to prise the Irishman from Spartak, first as Wigan manager last January, and again in August following his appointment at Everton.
McGeady’s progress at Spartak has been upset by injuries, and occasionally ill-discipline, but ultimately, the squad has not been strong enough to challenge for Russian Premier League or European club honours.
McGeady will relish the prospect of arriving at an Everton that are very much on the up, as their great form this season sees them pushing for Champions League spaces in the Premier League.
