Ireland's Aiden McGeady makes permanent move to the Championship

The Irish international has left Everton to join Sunderland.

Updated at 22.35

IRELAND INTERNATIONAL AIDEN McGeady has joined Sunderland from Everton on a three-year deal, the Black Cats have confirmed.

The move sees the 31-year-old link back up with manager Simon Grayson, who worked with the winger during a successful loan spell at Preston last season in which he was named the club’s player of the season.

McGeady joined Everton from Spartak Moscow in January 2014, but struggled for first-team football, and ultimately was deemed surplus to requirements at the Goodison Park.

Following the news, Grayson said: “Aiden’s career speaks volumes. He’s been an exceptional player and was an outstanding performer at Preston last season.

“He was recognised by the league with Player of the Month awards and he already knows a few of the lads from his Everton days. He has the pace to take people on and carry us up the pitch, and he’ll excite the supporters.”

The Black Cats have also announced the signing of striker James Vaughan from Bury on a two-year deal.
