Spartak Moscow are moving to upgrade Aiden McGeady's contract.

The former Celtic winger is being linked with Everton and Aston Villa ahead of the January market with his deal now inside its final 12 months.

Izvestia says Spartak do not want to lose McGeady and are offering him new terms worth €2.5 million-a-year.

If no agreement can be struck in the coming weeks, Spartak will seek to sell in January rather than lose him on a Bosman.
