Everton interested in Republic of Ireland star

Everton are being linked with a move for Republic of Ireland winger Aidan McGeady, who is currently playing in Russia with Spartak Moscow.

McGeady, a former Celtic player, has recently refused to sign a contract extension with the Russian club, and new Toffees boss Roberto Martinez is keen to bring him to Goodison Park.

The Daily Record claimed at the start of the month that Martinez wanted to make the Irish winger his first summer signing as Everton boss, but now, reports in the LiverpoolEcho say that Everton are unlikely to pursue their interest in the winger.

But with McGeady rejecting a new contract, Spartak will be expecting some bids for the star, and should another club submit bids, Everton may well react and submit some bids of their own.

One player the LiverpoolEcho has linked Everton with is Japan player Keisuke Honda, a man who David Moyes was interested in before his departure to Manchester United.

The interest in Honda continues now under Martinez according to the Echo. Honda is a free agent, and attracting interest from all over the world, including AC Milan, so if Everton want the star they will need to move fast.

Martinez officially takes charge on July 1, and you can expect some comings and goings at Goodison this summer, especially in the goalkeeper department.

Tim Howard is the only senior keeper left, after the departure of Jan Mucha last month.
