Aberdeen are braced for interest in right-back Calvin Ramsay from English Premier League side Everton during the January transfer window (Sun).

Everton sent scouts to watch the right-back as Aberdeen were beaten 2-0 by Motherwell in Scottish Premiership action on Saturday. Ramsay limped off with cramp after the hour-mark but the youngster made such an impression that the Goodison Park club have moved him to the top of their ‘January transfer watch-list.’

Interest in the talented Aberdeen player has emerged from Everton after they missed out on Scotland cap Patterson as the transfer window closed last month. Meanwhile, Aberdeen captain Joe Lewis has urged his teammates to respond to a run of games which has seen him go on a run of six games without a win.

He said: “I don’t think there’s a massive amount going wrong in terms of general play. We’ve got the quality in the squad, throughout the pitch, and things will turn around, I’ve no doubt of that. We’ve brought in good players, we’ve had a good transfer window and improved the team, but they all need time to settle.

“But there are expectations at Aberdeen, and we know that having lost today, there will be criticism coming our way, we understand that. But there’s no magic wand that you wave to just bring back winning performances.”
