Sunderland complete signing of Irish winger Aiden McGeady

Sunderland complete signing of Irish winger Aiden McGeady

Sunderland have confirmed the arrival of Aiden McGeady from Everton, as the 31-year-old tricky winger put pen to paper on a three-year deal at the Stadium of Light. We've gone practical Primark in favour of pretentious Prada, and for many of us that's welcome news.

James Vaughn also had a stellar season in League One in the previous campaign, scoring 24 goals from 37 games and will be bolstering the strike force of the Black Cats following the departures of Jermain Defoe and Fabio Borini. "It's good to come into a dressing room where you know quite a few players, that'll be helpful for me".

Following loan spells in the Championship with Sheffield Wednesday and Preston North End, he has now joined Sunderland on a permanent transfer.

That's four players brought into the club for less than £1,000,000. Surely that's good business?




"I think the way that I play is a little bit off-the-cuff".

"I'm delighted and it's a relief now it's happened", McGeady told the club's official website.

Sunderland boss Simon Grayson said: "I know negotiations and talks are going on between the two clubs, but I'd be surprised if it is at that level [£900,000]. It might be the best thing, to get out the spotlight, have a look at things, rebuild the squad, because we need hungry players who want to come here with a point to prove and to make a name for themselves at Sunderland". He's mobile, he knows where the goal is and he fits in with the ethos that we're trying to bring to Sunderland. Gone are the egos and bad eggs (for the most part), and in their place are talented grafters like McGeady and Vaughan - keen to prove that they can take a big club forward.
