Spartak Moscow are lining up a lucrative new deal for Everton target Aiden McGeady in a bid to keep him in Russia.

McGeady has openly spoken of his desire to play in the Premier League and says watching players in England makes him feel 'jealous'.

Everton are known admirers of the former Celtic winger and were linked with a move for him during the summer.

Spartak are bracing themselves for New Year interest in McGeady, who can leave for nothing when his contract expires in the summer.

But now, according to Russian newspaper Izvestia, they are ready to make him one of the club's highest earners with a bumper new deal.
