Roberto Martinez confirmed after today's FA Cup tie at Carlisle that the Irish international was considering offers from two sides and the Owls have beaten Yorkshire rivals Leeds United to the Irish winger's signature.
The 29-year-old completed a medical with his new club yesterday evening and trained with Wednesday's squad this morning.
McGeady, who has yet to start a Premier League game for Everton this season, is in need of first-team football ahead of Euro2016 and will hope to reignite his career with a spell in the Championship.

RM's strength is signing players but not this one on a dozy contract and silly money.
What percentage of his wages will we still be paying?

What has he been doing at Everton since he came back to pre-season training at the beginning of July?
Any answers off anyone at the club? To be blunt what is happening at the club?

I like the lad and wish him well for the future.

I hope he does well, gets Wednesday into the playoffs, has a great Euros and gets offered a deal with them. That would test his desire to take a pay cut as he'd surely have to.

You're not alone admittedly but how have you formed the opinion that he's a conman?
I mean I assume you wouldn't use the term without having solid facts to back it up.

I stand by calling him a con-man, and could compile a list of players over the years that are in the same category as McGeady.
26 Posted 03/02/2016 at 15:53:27
But surely you can't send McGeady off with a "Well done, lad, all the best"?
Are Spurs supporters saying good luck to Adebayor? I don't think so.
27 Posted 03/02/2016 at 16:20:44
I think they're all con men. I can't see how the amounts they rake in are justified, so aren't "earned". How much is the TV money now that goes to clubs?! And how much do tickets cost?! And where does most of it go? There's no trickle down in this economy. No wonder Liverpool Supporters Club are up in arms about the new ticket price structure across the park.
You and me have both been conned, Paul! But we keep going back. Who are the biggest fools?

Take Sako at the dark side; I played in the league in IoM, and I haven't seen a worse player in that league than this man.
He like a lot of footballers don't seem to have even the basic idea of what they are supposed to be doing, but still get unbelievable wages given to them. Yes, it's the supporters who are getting conned. Big time.

I'm an accountant and I used to be worked hard. My job is starting to dry up. Am I conning the boss? Should I take a pay cut as my workload isn't what it was?
If McGeady stayed at Everton to the detriment of his chances of getting to Euro 2016 I might agree with you but as is stands he's been left out by the manager unless there's evidence to the contrary. He seems to be an easy target with all this talk of him being overweight etc.
There's a picture here of him from Tuesday night. Neither the picture nor the comments give any basis to these slur: Link
