Everton boss Roberto Martinez has provided updates on a host of players with only 9-days to go before the Premier League opener against Watford at Goodison Park.
The Toffees are managing a number of problems but despite early optimism that at least three of those players – Darron Gibson, Mo Besic and Aiden McGeady – would be fit for GW1 none will recover in time. However the trio are "close to a return" and should be back in contention before the end of August. Martinez also confirmed that the club are waiting to find out the severity of the hamstring tear suffered by Steven Pienaar while Romelu Lukaku is being assessed after limping out of Tuesdays’ friendly win over Dundee because of discomfort in his thigh. Everton supporters are unlikely to see Tony Hibbert until at least September following the injury he picked up against Arsenal in the Asia Trophy. Jul 30 - 6:09 PM

Sunderland turn their attentions to Everton’s Aiden McGeady whose days look numbered at Goodison Park…

Having apparently missed out on PSV Eindhoven wide-man Georginio Wijnaldum to local rivals Newcastle, Sunderland have turned their attentions to Everton’s Republic of Ireland international McGeady. The 29-year-old has had an indifferent time at Goodison since joining from Spartak Moscow, starting just 14 matches since January 2014. The arrival of Tom Cleverley and Gerard Deulofeu suggests that he is no longer in Roberto Martinez’s plans. Rumours surfaced last week that he had handed in a formal transfer request, with former club Celtic ready to offer him a return to the SPL. Sunderland are in the market for a specialist wide player with Adam Johnson’s future uncertain and Jermain Defoe and Conor Wickham unconvincing in the role last season.

An ongoing back problem is likely to keep Aidan McGeady out of this weekends’ trip to the Liberty Stadium while Martinez will also need to check on Romelu Lukaku who is rated as 50-50.

McGeady picked up the injury while on international duty with the Republic of Ireland and the Toffees winger is rated as a big doubt for Saturday - this setback being the latest in a number of problems which have hampered his progress in 2015 [only two league starts]. However with the exception of Bryan Oviedo, Darron Gibson and Tony Hibbert – all ruled out – the traffic in the treatment room at Finch Farm is beginning to ease giving Martinez lots of options for the season run-in. Everton travel to South Wales on the back of three straight wins and boast an excellent record against the Swans with no defeats in the previous nineteen league meetings.

Aiden McGeady has been named to the Everton squad that is traveling to Kiev for a Europa League match Thursday night, with Roberto Martinez assessing him before kickoff.

The manager will take a look in the morning to see how McGeady has progressed but one has to assume unless there is a setback that he should be good to go considering Martinez gave him a spot in the squad. With Kevin Mirallas' injury status not improving, it is a boost for Martinez's options out wide. As long as McGeady is somewhere on the teamsheet tomorrow, he will be in the running to start on Sunday against a very weak QPR defense.

Aidan McGeady will miss the trip to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday after picking up a knee injury in training.

McGeady was absent from last weekends’ Merseyside derby because of a training ground injury - bruised patella – and although the problem is not thought to be serious GW25 will come too soon. Roberto Martinez has a couple of concerns prior to the match against Chelsea - namely Leighton Baines who is struggling with a knee complaint with the England full-back facing a late fitness test. Steven Naismith [neck] will also be checked following an awkward fall on Saturday. However there was better news regarding Tim Howard who is now medically fit so the Toffees boss has a decision to make while James McCarthy came through 90 minutes against Liverpool unscathed after 6 weeks out with a hamstring problem.

With Kevin Mirallas set to miss extended time due to a hamstring injury, Aiden McGeady looks set to continue as a regular in Roberto Martinez's XI.

McGeady started the season occupying what would normally be Steven Pienaar's spot, but the South African is nearing fitness and McGeady had served Martinez well in the opening weeks, which would normally create a selection dilemma. However, now that the Toffees are short of another wide man, McGeady can fill in for Mirallas and continue being an intriguing budget option in the Yahoo game. He can currently be had for 4.51m.

Everton got all they could handle from a resilient Leicester City side who matched the Toffees goal-for-goal in a very entertaining 2-2 draw at King Power Stadium.

With Kevin Mirallas on the bench, Aiden McGeady was given a deserved start and built on a productive preseason when Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel was caught way out of net in an effort to block a Sylvain Distin shot. The deflection landed at McGeady's feet and he scooped a brilliant shot perfectly into the far corner for a certain "goal of the week" nomination. Leicester would equalize moments later. Everton were most effective down the left and that would bear fruit for their second goal but Leicester once again matched it late on to split the result. Everton shook off their "slow start" reputation last season under Roberto Martinez, but with Arsenal and Chelsea the next two opponents, the trend may be back.

27 year old Aiden McGeady has signed a four and a half year contract for Everton, completing a transfer from Spartak Moscow.

The Irish international has a reputation for his temper, last year he served a six match ban for hitting an opposing player, making a lewd gesture to the stadium crowd, then trashing said stadium's dressing room. Not to mention he was suspended by his own coach this season. His frustration materialized on the stat sheet, scoring just 13 times in 93 appearance in the Russian Premier League. McGeady is best used out wide and should figure into the selection mix for a spot normally occupied by either Steven Pienaar or Kevin Mirallas, likely Mirallas on the right, but he probably won't overtake either of them.
