Aiden McGeady's move to the Championship for the sake of some first team football has been warmly received by all sides - for very different reasons.
Early indicators suggest that Sheffield Wednesday supporters are chuffed to have signed an international winger. Everton supporters, meanwhile, seem happy to get rid of an expensive reserve - for a while at least.
And Irish supporters are happy he might at least get a run-out before June.

Delighted McGeady's signed. However it turns out for him, what an exciting team we're watching this season. Everything you want as a fan.

Rate happy with McGeady, and if the Guedioura rumours are true it'd be very good, absolutely bullied us when he played for forest #SWFC

Phew, looks like we've got rid of McGeady. One of the worst @everton players I can remember. And we've had quite a few...

Aiden McGeady no longer an Everton player. Pretty happy with #DeadlineDay so far.

Glad #McGeady has gone what a waste of space he was, got a feeling he'll be decent in the Championship its just about his level

Everton fans now moaning about the loan system. "Surely McGeady has to sign permanently for them"!!!! ?

Anyone else think best business we've done is shipping out mcgeady?! Well happy with that!

As ever, the feeling isn't unanimous.
Good luck to McGeady at Sheffield Wednesday. Didn't work out for him here but I do think there's a decent player in there somewhere.
