Roberto Martinez confirmed after today's FA Cup tie at Carlisle that the Irish international is considering offers from two sides that he stopped short of naming but are believed to be Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United, with the Owls reportedly favourites.
McGeady was reportedly reluctant to drop down a division but his need for first-team football ahead of Euro2016 has forced his hand.
Sky Sports are reporting that based on their sources the 29-year-old is set for a medical with Wednesday this evening.
McGeady, who has yet to start a Premier League game for Everton this season, was also believed to be the subject of interest from Blackburn, Leeds and West Ham while there was a report in The Guardian earlier about a possible approach from Seville.

And all of those could be classed as excellent signings.

Kone alone has not lived up to his transfer outlay, whilst Robles has not yet been given a proper chance.
Alcaraz, Eto'o and McGeady are failures but did not cost a huge amount.
Martinez net spend over 6 windows is low and the club stands to make a healthy profit if one of the gems is sold. On this side of things he has been excellent.

Cleverley has been okay so far but I'm a bit worried about his recent injuries; I hope he doesn't go the way of Gibson, same to be said of Besic who is a good player but I'm getting concerned by his injury record.
We don't really know anything about Holgate yet so we can't say he's an excellent signing.
Galloway looks a good prospect but give him time before we start more insane lavish predictions of greatness.
Funes Mori has been steady-ish so far... excellent? Let's wait and see... but steady, yes.

Wednesday will be good for him. Pity they play on Saturdays really!

He isn't exactly an all action modern midfielder but perhaps he just needs a long injury free run. Time will decide but up until now I wouldn't call him a success.

This club of ours has made money at every window for years and remains in the Premier League despite the patent lack of investment by any of our boardroom.

One thing to the comments though, I thought Kone was only about £5 million... so how is that a bad deal?

Too many Premier League players like him, just happy to take the money without the heart to compete for a place in the 1st 11. Embarrassing.

Good point. I agree that these are excellent signings in terms of the cost, their contribution so far and the astute blend of youth and experience.
Injuries just go with the territory these days, underlining the need for both expert back up medical staff and a good, strong squad.
32 Posted 31/01/2016 at 00:19:41
Good riddance you arrogant rich git.
Incidentally, Tim Howard disappointingly only signed about two autographs. Hats off to Ossie, Jags and Seamus who spent over 15 minutes signing everyone who asked. Class acts.

Hope it goes well for him at his next club.

I suppose you think the latest illuminati convert Rooney deserves a testimonial too.

Yes, I hope McGeady does well for himself and it will help his sale value for Everton. Why would you wish him ill? Did he commit some crime? No. Did he put in a transfer request? No. Do you personally know why the manager didn't play him? I will guess no, but wait to be corrected.
Did you want him at Everton to begin with? If not and he is now going elsewhere to play then what is it to you? Honestly, does everything on this site have to be so negative?
As for Rooney, is this really the same thing? But if his current team gives him one and invites Everton to play in it then again, what the heck does it have to do with you personally? Jesus, you must be a fun person to be around with your bright and sunny disposition.
Incidentally, Dave, you mentioned five players by name so what did the rest of them do that you singled McGeady and Howard out for negativity? Never mind, I am sure it has nothing to do with disliking Howard does it, even though it is an article on McGeady? I anxiously await the autograph count for the rest of the squad.
