Everton could be set to offload flop this summer for healthy profit

The Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern have been discussing Aiden McGeady and none of them believe that he has a future at Goodison Park.

So they might be pleased to hear the news that they could well be making a £2m profit on their fringe player.

Former football agent and now a freelance journalist Ross McCafferey is reporting that Aiden McGeady will leave Everton this summer to join Preston North End on a permanent deal.

With the reported fee expected to be in the region of £2.5m, that would mean Everton have made a healthy profit from McGeady, who joined the Toffees on a cut price deal from Spartak Moscow.

The Republic of Ireland international has certainly found his feet at Preston where he has become a fans’ favourite for his impressive displays, which earned him the February Player of the Month award in the Championship.

Preston are hoping to wrap up a permanent deal for Everton so this will come as good news to them too as they chase promotion next season.

It certainly seems to be a deal which both the Everton and the Preston North End fans in the Transfer Tavern are very pleased with.

Everton fans – are you pleased with this profit? Let us know in the comments below…
