Aiden McGeady: Swapped Glasgow for Moscow in 2010.

The Republic of Ireland international has one year remaining on his current contract with Spartak, who he joined from Celtic in August 2010.

Wigan were reportedly close to landing the 27-year-old in the January transfer window after terms were agreed, but it was claimed that McGeady went cool on the idea.

Following the end of the Russian season, which saw Spartak finish fourth in the Premier League, McGeady has joined up with his national side for a World Cup qualifier against the Faroe Islands on Friday.

However McGeady is unsure over whether he will return to play in the Russian capital again.

"I don't know if I've played my last game for Spartak. If they get an offer it's up to them whether they accept it," he said in The Sun.

"I don't want to spend another four or five years there. If I don't stay with Spartak, I would like to try somewhere else, maybe England.

"Moscow is not an easy place to live. I find it OK but it can be difficult for family."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
