McGeady flattered by Blues talk

Celtic winger Aiden McGeady admits he is flattered to be linked with a move to the Premier League, amid reports Birmingham want to sign him.

Blues have been linked with a move for the Republic of Ireland international with boss Alex McLeish thought to be an admirer of the player.

The 23-year-old says that while he is happy to stay in Glasgow, the club will make a final decision on his future.

“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,” McGeady told the Daily Record.

“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 at the moment.

“Of course, I’m aware of the transfer talk when people are talking about me and I’m very flattered by it 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.”
