Martin O'Neill has hinted at making a move for Celtic winger Aiden McGeady - should James Milner complete a move away from Aston Villa.[LNB] McGeady has been strongly linked with a move to Villa with the Republic of Ireland international tipped to leave Celtic this summer[LNB]Celtic chief Neil Lennon has admitted he thought McGeady was keen on a move away from Parkhead in search of a fresh challenge and Villa are thought to be leading the chase for the skilful star's signature.[LNB]O'Neill admits he will be looking to bring in new players if Villa end up selling Manchester City target James Milner and he has refused to rule out a move for McGeady.[LNB]"There's no point in me mentioning names but, without wanting to lose players of the calibre of Milner, we would want to try to recruit some players," said O'Neill.[LNB]"But, as the chairman said at the back end of last season, it's probably going to be a case of having to sell to buy and that's something I'm delving into at the moment."[LNB]"I think Aiden McGeady has the ability to play in the Premier League, without question.[LNB]"I had him as a kid at Celtic and played him without worrying too much about his youth."
