McGeady interested in England

Celtic star Aiden McGeady has admitted he is flattered to be linked with a move to the Premier League.

The 23-year-old Republic of Ireland international has been mentioned as a possible transfer target for Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa.

But despite claiming he is now happy at Celtic Park, the winger has admitted he would like to play in the English top-flight.

"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."
