The Toffees chief recently confirmed that an agreement for a new player is close to completion, however it is expected that it will be for a Bosman arrival rather than a January signing.
McGeady is said to be the name in question, but Martinez is believed to be keen on securing a free transfer for the Irishman – whose contract with Spartak Moscow expires in six months’ time.
The former Celtic man could be joined by Ince, who is also available for no fee at the end of the season.
The England U-21 star – who has been attracting interest from a host of top tier sides of late – could leave Blackpool for free once the current campaign ends, despite rumours that he may be on the verge of extending his contract at Bloomfield Road.
Martinez was thought to be looking at drafting in new names in the coming weeks to boost his team’s top four hopes, but it is thought that the Spaniard is now looking to wait as he is anxious of derailing their push by adding fresh personalities to the dressing room.
