The former Celtic wide-man has rejected the opportunity of signing a new deal in the Russian capital as his current contract expires at the end of the season.

The 27-year-old has recently moved his family back to the United Kingdom ahead of a possible return home in January or at the end of the season.

“Everything is OK with McGeady and he has gone back to Britain with his family,” said Spartak’s sporting director Roman Askhabadze.

“His contract runs out in the summer, he was offered a contract extension by us, but he has refused that. He did that for family reasons as his wife and children could not adapt to Moscow.

“Over the winter, if we get an offer which suits Spartak, then McGeady will go.

“But if a suitable offer does not come in, he will be with us until the end of his contract.”

McGeady said earlier this month: “I have made no secret of the fact that one day I would like to play in England. I would be disappointed if I never get the chance to do that.

“The club have offered me a new one (deal) but I’m not of a mind to sign it.

“It is in my mind to get back somewhere closer to home. I have told the club that and they are fine with it.”
