Both Sunderland’s Martin O’Neill, who managed the Glasgow-born winger with strong Gaoth Dobhair connections at Celtic, and new Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers (a mad Celtic fan) are considering a transfer move.
Reports in the British papers say O’Neill is particularly keen on taking McGeady from Spartak Moscow.
All that will be far from Aiden’s mind this week however as Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni confirmed the ex-Celt will start in the country’s first Euro 2012 clash against Croatia next Sunday.
McGeady was named in the starting line-up for the Hungary friendly and Trapattoni said: “The team that starts against Hungary will be the same team that starts against Croatia, without problems at the last moment.”
He added: “James (McClean) will be on the bench, with the others.”
