Moscow Winger Who’s Free To Leave – Newcastle Named As Interested Club

8 years ago

Earlier this month we brought you news of possible interest in an Aiden McGeady transfer move to St.James’ Park.

Newcastle were linked with the Spartak Moscow winger when he was forced to train with the kids because of perceived disciplinary problems and the player trying to force a move.

Now Spartak’s Sporting Director, Roman Askhabadze, has said;

“Over the winter (window), if we get an offer which suits Spartak then Aiden McGeady will go – but if a suitable offer doesn’t come in, he’ll be with us until the end of his contract.”

Reports in Moscow continue to link Newcastle with the player and his club will be desperate to pull in some money for a player who is desperate to be away, rather than letting hjos contract run down.

What We Reported 2 Weeks Ago

The latest name added to the Newcastle January transfer targets list is Moscow based winger Aiden McGeady.

The ex-Celtic winger has been transfer listed by coach Valery Karpin and forced to train with the Spartak Moscow youth team.

27 year old McGeady is out of contract at the end of the season and Newcastle are one of the clubs said to be interested after the winger publicly said he wanted to move to the Premier League.

Coach Karpin;

“McGeady has been removed from practice session because he didn’t comply with the instructions of the head coach during matches and in practice.”

One of Spartak Moscow’s assistant coaches, Boris Pozdnyakov, gave us more of an insight into exactly why the winger has been sidelined;

“McGeady has repeatedly said he wants to continue his career in England and the head coach could not tolerate that, so took strict measure – I think he was totally correct.”

In 72 league appearances for the Russian club, McGeady has score 11 goals since his move just over three years ago.
