Alderweireld keen on Spartak option

Ajax defender Toby Alderweireld has welcomed the interest of Spartak Moscow after the Russian club reportedly made an offer for the Belgium international.

I now understand that they have made Ajax an offer for me.

Only when the clubs are granted permission (to talk to me) will I think.

I want to focus first on Belgium-France on Wednesday.

I've always said that I will seriously look at each option.

Those who know me, know that I will never choose just for the money but for the image and history of the team.

McGeady's Moscow time could be up

Aiden McGeady has admitted Spartak Moscow may look to cash in on him this summer as he enters the final year of his contract in Russia.

I have only got a year left on my contract, so (transfer rumours are) bound to happen. Maybe Spartak want to cash in on me now because if they don't, there's a possibility I could leave for nothing.

But I am happy there just now. When I came back into the team in March when I got fit again, I was probably playing some of the best stuff I have played since I went there and I was happy with everything.

I am easy. I have enjoyed it and we will see what happens.
