Aberdeen have not given up hope of keeping Gary Mackay-Steven, according to a report. The Evening Express has revealed that the Dons are set to have a final round of talks with the player.
Mackay-Steven’s contract expires very soon and it seems that he is undecided on his future. The report goes on to claim that New York City are interested in taking the player to the MLS.
Derek McInnes will be hopeful that the talks have a positive outcome. The fact that Mackay-Steven has agreed to the talks could be a promising sign for the Dons.
Positive sign ahead of next season
If McInnes can persuade Mackay-Steven to sign a new deal it would be a further sign for the Dons that they aim to compete next season.
They have already signed both Shay Logan and Joe Lewis to new deals recently. If Mackay-Steven, who on his day can be a very good player, stays at the Dons for another year it would be a good sign for the year ahead.
Badly affected by injuries
Mackay-Steven was badly affected by injuries last season. But when he is on his game he can make a difference for Aberdeen.
The outcome of the talks will be interesting for all at Aberdeen. The Dons support will hope that the talks have a positive outcome, and that Mackay-Steven does not leave the club.
