Intrigue surrounds the future of out-of-contract Aberdeen winger Gary Mackay-Steven.
The player has revealed that he has not decided where he will play his football next season. He plans to have discussions with his agent before making his final decision.
“Nothing is decided yet. I was focusing on getting back fit and pulling on the shirt again before the end of the season” he told the Press and Journal.
“Nothing else has been sorted”
“Nothing else has been sorted for the summer – I’ll sit down with my agent and my family and let the gaffer know.”
Mackay-Steven has had to deal with plenty of injury problems this season, only making his return in the last game of the season, the 2-1 win over Hibernian.
It would be a huge boost for Dons manager Derek McInnes if Mackay-Steven decides to sign a new deal at Pittodrie.
Help with rebuilding process
The Dons look set to be in a rebuilding phase this summer. Keeping the winger would mean that one less player needs to be replaced.
Injuries limited Mackay-Steven to only 30 appearances this season, but during that time he scored seven goals, which is a decent return.
Aberdeen will want to know Mackay-Steven’s decision sooner rather than later. However, he is within his rights to take his time, as he is out of contract.
It will be interesting to see where he ends up playing next season. Aberdeen fans will be hoping it is at Pittodrie.
