The Republic of Ireland global signed for Everton in January 2014, following spells with Celtic and Spartak Moscow.

Sunderland have announced the double signing of Aiden McGeady and James Vaughan. Brendan Galloway and Tyias Browning both came in on loan from Everton last week.

Sunderland midfielder Lee Cattermole is delighted that Simon Grayson left his post at Preston North End to take over at the recently relegated side, and is very glad that a big name manager didn't get the job, as reported by the Sunderland Echo.

"With Simon Grayson coming to Sunderland, and having him previous year at Preston, he probably got the best out of me last season. Aiden has the pace to carry us up the pitch and he'll excite the supporters".

Vaughan, meanwhile, has put pen to paper on a two-year contract at the Stadium of Light, having scored 24 goals in 37 appearances for League One Bury in 2016-17.

JP Morgan Chase second quarter profits rise to $7bn
The rating was maintained by Macquarie Research on Tuesday, September 1 with "Buy". (NYSE:JPM) rating on Wednesday, October 7. The financial services provider reported $1.65 EPS for the quarter, topping the consensus estimate of $1.52 by $0.13.

The 31-year-old spent last season playing under Grayson at Preston, and feels he played some of the best football of his career during his year-long spell at Deepdale.

Grayson told the club's official website that his side "were missing a striker with a physical presence" prior to the signing of Vaughan, adding that the former Everton man "certainly brings that attribute".

The striker has become a bit of a journeyman since a promising start to his career, with his list of clubs including Derby County, Leicester City, Crystal Palace, Norwich City, Huddersfield Town, Birmingham City and most recently Bury before his Wearside move.

"He is a player I have worked with and I know about, but we have to bring in bodies and they have to be the right ones - whether it is James Vaughan or any other player we have been linked with".
