Blues Swoop For McGeady

Everton have further boosted their attacking options with the capture of Aiden McGeady from Spartak Moscow.

The Republic of Ireland winger joins for an undisclosed fee from the Russian side to add even more attacking flair and creativity to Roberto Martinez's high-flying Toffees.

The former Celtic man, 27, arrives with a host of international and Champions League experience and has penned a four-and-a-half year deal.

Some reports had suggested McGeady would land on Merseyside this summer when his contract with Spartak was set to expire but Blues boss Martinez worked hard to secure an immediate permanent transfer.

His arrival was revealed to a packed Goodison Park when the player took to the pitch moments before Saturday’s Premier League clash with Norwich City.

In his six years at Celtic, McGeady was named the club's Young Player of the Year three times and won four Scottish Premier League titles, two Scottish League Cups and two Scottish Cups. He was also voted Scotland's best player by his fellow professionals in 2008, picking up the SPFA's Players' Player of the Year prize.

That form prompted a £9.5m switch to the Russian capital, where he quickly became a regular for Spartak, helping them to second in the league in 2011/12.

His switch to Goodison Park sees him link-up with international teammates Seamus Coleman, James McCarthy and Darron Gibson.
