Sky Bet Championship club Sheffield Wednesday could soon be celebrating a new signing into Hillsborough on this transfer deadline day.
Their fans, who are present here in the Transfer Tavern, have been alerted to a piece in the Sheffield Star that has confirmed that the play-off chasing club are close to signing Everton winger Aiden McGeady.
The Republic of Ireland international has played very little football during his time at Goodison Park, which has seen him become keen on an exit and he now looks set to sign for the Owls on an initial loan deal, which will run until the end of the season.
One Wednesday supporter is waiting patiently for the landlord to bring him his pub lunch and thinks McGeady could offer vital experience for the Owls during a difficult run-in between now and the end of the season.
The signing would probably end Wednesday’s business for the mid-season window and the club will turn their attentions towards the fight for a place in next season’s Premier League.
Wednesday fans… Would you welcome McGeady? Let us know in the comments below!
