Report: Sevilla line up shock move for out-of-favour Everton winger Aiden McGeady

The Ireland international had been linked with several Championship clubs this month.

Plenty of Championship clubs have been linked with a loan move for Aiden McGeady in recent weeks. The Irish international is not in Roberto Martinez's plans at Goodison Park and is available on a loan deal if a team can tempt him out.

The Liverpool Echo states that Sheffield Sheffield Wednesday, Leeds United and Blackburn Rovers are all keen on getting the player, but his high wages and his aversion to playing in the Championship have proven a stumbling block toward any potential deal.

Now he does not need to worry about heading to the Championship - because apparently La Liga side and reigning Europa League champions Sevilla are keen on bringing the Republic of Ireland international to Spain.

The report from The Guardian states that Sevilla coach Unai Emery, who briefly managed McGeady at Spartak Moscow in Russia, is keen on bringing in McGeady as extra cover for the rest of the season.

McGeady has fallen foul of Roberto Martinez's team selection recently and has played just one game for the club this season - in a 5-3 win against Barnsley in the Capital One Cup back in August.

However he has played three times for Ireland this season and his hope will be that a switch from Everton to Sevilla will ensure him of a trip to Euro 2016 in the summer.
