The English Football League (EFL) have published Sunderland’s official squad list for the new season and it does not include Aiden McGeady.
The 92-cap Republic of Ireland international, who returned to the club following his loan spell with Charlton last term, has seen his future at the Stadium of Light been discussed of late. The £653,000-valued attacker returned to training with the Black Cats’ under-23s earlier this summer but he has not been handed a chance in Phil Parkinson’s first team squad.
Numerous reports about the winger’s future have followed, with The Northern Echo reporting that McGeady would not be included in Sunderland’s EFL squad.
That has now been confirmed with the EFL publishing squad lists and the 34-year-old winger being a notable absentee from Sunderland’s selection.
The EFL have now published the squad number lists submitted by each club for the 2020/21 season.

The Republic of Ireland international has featured for Sunderland in 98 games, scoring 27 goals and supplying 13 assists in the process.
McGeady’s future at Sunderland needs to be resolved as quickly as possible.
The winger is definitely still capable of making an impact in League One, judging by his record for the Black Cats, and could even be an asset in the Championship if the Wearsiders win promotin, but his omission from their EFL squad list clearly shows that Parkinson is not keen on him.
Do you think McGeady will leave Sunderland between now and the end of the transfer window? Let us know your views in the comments section below…
