Sunderland Not Preston For McGeady

Sunderland Not Preston For McGeady

Preston's hopes of signing Aiden McGeady on a permanent basis, following his successful loan from Everton last season, were always thought to be hampered by the financial constraints involved.

McGeady would most likely involve a fee and is on Premier League wages.

However, the Deepdale departure of Simon Grayson, who got the best out of the Republic of Ireland international, is expected to mean McGeady joined Sunderland and not Preston.

Vital Everton said:

Everton and Sunderland conducted several deals last season when former Blues boss David Moyes was in charge - they'll do another when Aiden McGeady seals a permanent transfer to the Stadium of Light.

According to the BBC, McGeady, who doesn't have a future at Goodison Park, will link up with Simon Grayson, his boss at Preston during a loan spell last season.

McGeady was signed in January 2014 from Russian club Spartak Moscow but has only managed 41 appearances and scored one goal for Everton.

A less than successful loan at Sheffield Wednesday the season before last was followed up by one at Preston - he played 35 games and scored eight goals - during the last campaign when he won the Player of the Year award.

Capped 90 times by the Republic of Ireland, McGeady, 31, has a year left on his current contract at Goodison.

This, as much as he was instrumental at Preston as North End helped revived McGeady's flagging career, would hardly be surprising really, would it?
