As Celtic move stalls, should Leeds make offer for winger Aiden McGeady?

Celtic's move for Everton's Aiden McGeady has hit a wall, so should winger needy Leeds United make a move?

Aiden McGeady is pushing for a move away from Everton, after failing to earn a place in Roberto Martinez's side this season.

The winger had been hoping to earn a loan move to Celtic, his former side, but the Daily Record report this has stalled with the Scottish champions being unwilling to pay his wages.

The same report claims a Championship move is his next most likely option, with McGeady keen to get regular football under his belt ahead of Euro 2016.

If it is the roaring crowds of Celtic Park which McGeady also craves, the next best thing in terms of the Championship would be a switch to one of the best supported teams in England's second tier, Leeds United.

For the Whites a move would be a perfect fit, with the club in need of a winger. A loan move for Sunderland's Will Buckley turned out to be a disappointment, and manager Steve Evans told BBC Radio Leeds at the weekend he was chasing a wide man.

Getting McGeady in on loan would be an ideal option, especially if the club elect to part ways with Sam Byram, who has been playing in an advanced role over the past few weeks.

Leeds have the finances available to make a contribution towards his wages, and would be sensible to make an offer to Everton.

McGeady possesses the game changing ability Leeds need, as they aim to make their side more free-scoring, having struggled this season.

With Euro 2016 on the horizon, McGeady, 29, has all the motivation to be a success in his next move. If Leeds do not sign him up, there is a real chance he will be playing for a division rival instead, unless Celtic have a change of heart about paying his wages.
