The 30-year-old has been frozen out at Goodison Park and has been looking for a move away but has been unable to secure a permanent deal.
McGeady, who still has a little under two years left on his contract, spent part of last season on loan at Sheffield Wednesday and is now heading back to the Championship for the season with Preston.
The confirmation comes a few hours after Shani Tarashaj joined Eintracht Frankfurt on a season-long loan and at the same time as Academy defender James Yates's five-month loan switch to Crewe.
Leandro Rodriguez, who was apparently told he could leave the club, remains on the books, as does Oumar Niasse.

I just found him to over do it with the ball too much a bit like Del Boy!

He should ever have come in the first place, but apparently Roberto thought the sun shone out of his arse, and where's he now? I arrest m'case, m'lud.
Very quiet transfer window closure, as far as we are concerned, but I think we dodged a bullet with Moussa Sissoko, for £30M I don't think he would have been the answer.
In Ron We Trust.

I think if you compare our team now vs last season, we have got stronger this window:
Howard; Coleman, Stones, Jagielka, Baines; McCarthy, Barry; Deulofeu, Barkley, Mirallas; Lukaku. Subs: Robles, Funes Mori, Oviedo, Besic, Cleverley, Lennon, Niasse.
Stekelenburg; Coleman, Jagielka, Williams, Baines; Gana Gueye, Barry; Bolasie, Barkley, Mirallas; Lukaku. Subs: Robles, Funes Mori, Holgate, Besic, Lennon, Deulofeu, Valencia.
That's an improvement surely AND for near-enough a zero nett spend.

Expect to see his Ford Mustang riding into Merseyside again soon.

Then he basically tries to repeat the same trick with McGeady... short, fat winger, lost his way a bit, Gaelic background, etc etc. Thing is, he was a completely different fucking person!
It doesn't work like that Roberto, you knob! You should have just signed Maloney again, you divvy.
