Gibson and McGeady could move on


Darron Gibson and Aiden McGeady could be on the move during the January transfer window, Everton manager Roberto Martinez has confirmed.

McGeady has been linked with a move back to Celtic but an issue over his wages could see him miss out on the chance to rejoin the Scottish champions, while there has also been interest in Gibson from Aston Villa and Sunderland.

The Republic of Ireland duo have struggled for game time this season and they may have little choice but to move away from Goodison Park if they want regular first-team football ahead of the Euro 2016 finals.

"We have had a lot of interest in Darron Gibson and Aiden McGeady and we need to sit down and consider what is the next step," said Martinez.

"It has been disappointing for them not to have enough minutes on the pitch and they need to be playing until the end of the season due to the opportunity of playing for Ireland in the Euros.

"They deserve to have special attention at this stage of the season. They haven't played enough and now is a good opportunity to see if the second half of the season can be a good one."
