Aberdeen owner Dave Cormack has insisted there’s been no contact from clubs regarding a move for Dons star Calvin Ramsay – with the Pittodrie chief insisting the teenager is in the “elite upper bracket” for young full-backs in Europe.
Ramsay has been linked with the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Everton and Cormack confessed that, if the right price is offered, Ramsay could be sold in January.
While Cormack wasn’t actively looking to push Ramsay out the door, Cormack is prepared for players to move on next month – although he was adamant there was no necessity for Aberdeen to sell next month when the transfer window opens.
“Absolutely. He’s a lovely kid who looks after himself and has his feet on the ground. And he can use both feet,” Cormack said.
“There’s not many right-backs like him at that age doing what he does when you look at all the data. All these clubs look at the same systems. They will have seen the same things that we have.
“That he’s in the elite upper bracket for a young right-back in Europe. Right up there across Europe and they are seeing that. That’s why we believe there will be a lot of interest, although we have not had a call from everyone yet.
“We certainly haven’t had any contact from any clubs about any young players, Calvin Ramsay or otherwise. But the window is coming up so I’m guessing we’ll see.
“If the right price comes along for the right player and we have the ability to replace that player then it is something we would look at. But players will go not just if it’s right for them, but if it’s right for the club as well.
“In saying that, we don’t need to sell players in January, I can tell you that right now. We certainly don’t need to sell players in January and we won’t be encouraging any last-minute window approaches for the sake of us being unable to replace players.”
