Aiden McGeady has been named The Championship's Player of the Month for February.

The Everton winger, who is on a season-long loan at Preston North End has impressed since joining Simon Grayson's side in August. Last month, the 30-year-old played all but ten minutes for Preston in their five league games.

He impressed in all five matches, scoring three goals and getting two assists as Preston creep their way up the table in The Championship.

"It's a great accolade to get, to see your form recognised over the past month", McGeady said after the award was announced. "I feel like I've been pretty consistent all season but obviously a few goals and a few assists grab the headlines but the main thing is that the team has been doing well."

"I'm enjoying my football again. Just playing games again really, I had sort of forgotten what I could play like because I hadn't really played that much."

McGeady's boss Simon Grayson was nominated for the Manager of the Month, but the award was won by Huddersfield manager David Wagner.

"I think some of his performances with the ball have been outstanding", Grayson said of McGeady. "He's had the end product as well and he's got the goals that his performances have warranted this year."

"Let's hope in another month we are talking about him winning another award but we are very pleased for him and I am proud to be his manager."
