McGeady on the brink of move to La Liga as Sevilla make loan bid

The Everton winger has been left in the cold by Roberto Martinez and McGeady is willing to move to Spain to kick-start his career

Spanish side Sevilla have made a loan move for Everton and Ireland's Aidan McGeady according to reports. The winger is said to be willing to accept a move to La Liga in order to refresh his chances of a starting place in Martin O'Neill's Euro 2016 squad team.

While McGeady remains an important figure in O'Neill's squad, with limited to no game-time and a dwindling base of fitness, it appears he is ready to take the plunge to cement himself in O'Neill's plans with a move abroad.

The Irish international has made just one appearance for Everton this year, which came in the League Cup, and he has shown a willingness to broaden his horizons in the past with a move to Russia in 2010 from Glasgow Celtic. 

McGeady played for Sevilla manager Unai Emery at Spartak Moscow during his brief tenure as the manager of the Russian side and this short spell together is said to be the reason behind the planned move.

The Everton winger had been linked with moves to Celtic, before wages became and issue, Leeds United, Blackburn Rovers and Sheffield Wednesday but McGeady was unwilling to drop into the Championship.

The Glasgow-born McGeady has fallen down the pecking order at Goodison Park behind Kevin Miralles, Steven Pienaar and Gerard Deulofeu. He will be faced with competition from Vitolo and Evgen Konoplyanka at Sevilla and will be inserted directly into a team competing for a European place and still active in the Europa League, which they have won two years in a row.
