Report: Aiden McGeady On The Verge Of Permanent Move From Everton
By PJ Browne

Less than a day after Simon Grayson was announced as the new manager of Sunderland comes news of his likely first signing.

The Telegraph's Luke Edwards reports that Aiden McGeady will join Grayson at the Stadium of Light.

The Ireland midfielder, currently on the books at Everton, spent last season playing for Grayson on loan at Preston.

McGeady enjoyed a career renaissance under the 47-year-old at Deepdale. After a disappointing time at Everton and also on loan at Sheffield Wednesday the previous season, McGeady was a key player for Grayson.

In 34 Championship appearances last season, he scored eight goals and provided nine assists.

It is a move which comes as no real surprise for McGeady, one which makes sense for both him and the incoming Sunderland manager.

Last week, Preston announced the acquisition of young Man Utd midfielder Josh Harrop. It was a move which clouded McGeady's future. It had been assumed he would join Preston given his stellar showing while on loan.

To see the uncertainty cleared up so quickly and regular first team football again be in McGeady's path will be a definite positive for Ireland manager Martin O'Neill.
