Birmingham target McGeady wants England move

Celtic wing wizard Aiden McGeady wants a move to the Premiership.

McGeady was outstanding as the Hoops beat Hapoel Tel Aviv 2-0 on Wednesday night. But the result was not enough to stop Tony Mowbray's men crashing out of Europe.

Now Birmingham City are set to step up their interest in the 23-year-old next month, says the Scottish Sun.

McGeady admitted: "I am still fairly young. I'm 23 and every player has aspirations to play at the top level and I won't deny that I feel that way too.

"But things are starting to go a bit better here than they were before. I'm happy at Celtic.

"There was a point a few months back when I probably wasn't, but I'm starting to get back to enjoying it the way I did before. That's down to the change of style in the football we're being asked to play.

"If a team comes in with a bid then I'm still under contract until 2013. Like I say, though, everyone wants to play in England or abroad. I won't deny I have those ambitions.

"However, it's not up to me whether or not I go.

"Of course, I'm aware of the transfer talk and I'm very flattered but I don't take too much notice.

"If a bid comes in and the club accepts it then that is not down to me."
