Toffees Sign McGeady

Everton have completed the signing of Scottish winger Aiden McGeady on a four-and-a-half year contract from Russian outfit Spartak Moscow.

The Toffees presented the Republic of Ireland international to the fans before the 2-0 win over Norwich at Goodison Park on Saturday.

The 27 year old winger scored 13 goals in his 93 matches for Spartak and has stated his delight at the switch and to be working with Everton manager Roberto Martinez.

“It has sort of been a long time coming. There was talk over the summer that something might happen but I am just delighted that it’s done and dusted now,” the winger told reporters.

“I was close to joining the manager a year ago when he was at Wigan. He plays football the right way and has got a few good results along the way.”

“I just want to play for a big club like this and I am relishing the challenge,” he added.

“I have said for a long time now that I want to try myself in the Premier League. Now I have a big chance at a great club, under a good manager.”

“I couldn’t be happier. It’s a dream move really,” McGeady concluded.
