Despite all the speculation linking him with moves away from Aberdeen, Stevie May is still at Pittodrie.
Dundee, Dundee United St Mirren and May’s former team St Johnstone were all after him according to the Scottish Sun. The Daily Record even linked him to Kilmarnock, although nothing ever came to fruition.
Then a move back to McDiarmid Park broke down, with the Evening Express claiming May had passed a medical before the deal fell through.
Now the striker himself is reportedly keen to end this saga once and for all.
Aberdeen forward May will drop demands to push through his exit
The Daily Record have reported that May will drop his demands in order to push through a move to St Johnstone.
They claim that he had agreed terms on a three-year deal before the last deal was plugged. May wanted an additional payment alongside that deal, but is now willing to drop it to make the move happen.
This development puts the ball back in the St Johnstone court. They haven’t signed a striker since the collapse of May’s transfer, so you’d like to think they would still be keen on him.
Chris Kane is Tommy Wright’s only senior striker. He’ll be eager to bring in a goalscorer and May could be that man. Whilst he hasn’t netted regularly for the Dons, May did score 32 times in 80 games during his first Perth stint.
This big question with this now though is whether everyone can come together to make it happen.
