Irish international set for UK return.
Roman Askhabadze, the president of Russian giants Spartak Moscow, has said that the club are open to offers for Republic of Ireland midfielder Aiden McGeady in January, Sky Sports reports.
The former Celtic man made the move to the Russian Premier League back in 2010 but will be out of contract at the end of the season and has been widely linked with a return to the UK.
Askhabadze has admitted that he would like to keep a hold of the winger and still hopes a deal can be done, but he is aware that he may be forced to cash in on him now rather than lose him on a free transfer as the 27-year-old continues to stall on opening fresh talks.
“The club is willing to discuss a new contract for Aiden at any time,” said Askhabadze in the Daily Record.
“But if we get a good offer this winter, we would be willing to consider it.”
McGeady has generally performed well during his time in Russia and has made 89 appearances since making the switch, scoring 13 goals and creating 29 assists in the process.
He is believed to want to return to the UK in order to be closer to his family after his girlfriend has failed to settle in the country and was linked with the likes of Everton, Sunderland and Aston Villa over several points over the summer.
