Everton manager Roberto Martinez says that Aiden McGeady's loan move away from the club is close to completion.

Despite rumours linking him with a move to Europa League champions Sevilla, a move to the English second tier is on the cards with Sheffield Wednesday believed to be leading the queue.

Speaking after Everton's victory over Carlisle in today's FA Cup fifth round tie, Martinez confirmed two teams had agreed terms with the Toffees for the Ireland winger.

"We've agreed terms with two teams in the Championship. It's just a matter of time before one of the deals is clinched," he said.

"Aiden needs to play and it's a really good opportunity for him to do that in a very demanding fixture list for a team that can get a really good tempo into Aiden for Euro 2016."
