EVERTON MANAGER ROBERTO Martinez refuses be drawn on speculation the club are close to tying up a deal for Aiden McGeady.

The winger’s contract at Russian Premier League outfit Spartak Moscow is set to expire at the end of the season, leaving him free to discuss a move to other clubs.

Goodison Park has been touted as a possible destination for the Republic of Ireland international, with reports suggesting that he will undergo a medical at the club later today.

Martinez was unmoved when questioned about a potential deal for the former Celtic man, but did confirm he was close to adding to his squad.

“The situation is he (McGeady) is still registered with another football club,” he said. “I won’t disrespect another team. I don’t think he’s due (for a medical).

“We are close to adding, it’s not a matter of rushing things, we know what we want it’s a case of making it happen. We have to make sure we don’t bring the wrong personality to the club.”
