Republic of Ireland international winger Aiden McGeady has joined Everton from Spartak Moscow, the English Premier League club announced on Saturday. The 27-year-old former Celtic player arrives for an undisclosed fee and has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract, having spent a little over three years in the Russian capital.

McGeady was presented to Everton's fans prior to their home game against Norwich City at Goodison Park on Saturday. A short, skilful wide player, McGeady spent six years at Celtic, during which time he won four Scottish Premier League titles, two Scottish League Cups and two Scottish Cups.

He also proved a success at Spartak following his £9.5m transfer from Celtic in 2010, helping them to a second-place finish in the Russian Premier League in 2012.

His move to Goodison Park sees him link up with Irish international team-mates Seamus Coleman, James McCarthy and Darron Gibson.
