Everton boss Roberto Martinez is ready to land Spartak Moscow winger Aiden McGeady.

The Daily Mail says Martinez is closing in on a £6million move to make McGeady his top summer signing as Everton manager.

Everton's former Wigan boss is on the verge of a transfer breakthrough as he prepares to take £5million striker Arouna Kone and out-of-contract centre-back Antolin Alcaraz from his old club.

Mindful of the need to maintain the progress made under David Moyes, Martinez aims to add at least two more new faces to his squad, with McGeady set to be the costliest of all.

Desperately disappointed to miss out on the Spartak Moscow and former Celtic winger in January, after a £5million bid was turned down, he has kept tabs on a player he rates highly and is confident of landing him at the second attempt.
