Former Celtic star Aiden McGeady has secured a summer switch to Everton in the summer, according to the Daily Mail.
The Republic of Ireland international’s contract with Russian side Spartak Moscow is up at the end of the season and so he was available on a free contract.
Everton boss Roberto Martinez was always keen on signing the winger from Spartak, having previously trying to secure his signature when in charge of Wigan.
In an interview with the Daily Mirror, Martinez confirmed his interest in the Ireland international saying: “We are very close to a deal with Aiden for the summer, that is true. You know I like him as a player.”
With the move going through McGeady will join fellow Ireland internationals Seamus Coleman and James McCarthy. Both players are currently excelling under Martinez.
Coleman’s form has even raised questions about whether or not the Toffee’s can keep him past this season, though Martinez is insistent that they can.
“I’m sure at the end of the season we will look at his contract. His role in the team is growing, he is getting more important…..He is happy at Everton and has a long-term contract but I always said that players that do well and perform, it is my intention to sit down in the summer and reassess.”
Martinez's Everton play struggling Norwich this weekend and will hope to keep their run of good games going and move back up the table, overtaking Merseyside rivals Liverpool in the process.
