Sheffield Wednesday have a Sky Bet Championship rival for the loan signing of Aiden McGeady, Roberto Martinez has confirmed.

Wednesday agreed a deal with Everton on Saturday to take the Republic of Ireland winger on loan for the rest of the season, according to Sky sources.

And Martinez says a second club has now met Everton's terms for a player who has made just one first-team appearance this season.

A statement on Everton's website mentioned Leeds and Blackburn as other interested parties, and Martinez said: "It seems very close.

"We've agreed terms with two teams in the Championship. It's just a matter of time before one of the deals is clinched.

"Aiden needs to play and it's a really good opportunity for him to do that in a very demanding fixture list for a team that can get a really good tempo into Aiden for Euro 2016.
