Aberdeen could be set to miss out on a multi-million pound transfer windfall after Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser admitted that he’s likely to remain on the south coast for another year.
Fraser has been chased by the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and a host of other top sides this summer with Aberdeen hoping to cash in as a result of a 20% sell on clause they agreed when they sold the winger to the Cherries in 2014.
The winger’s contract ends next summer so he could then move on for free, leaving Aberdeen with nothing, and all Fraser had to say about his future is that “what will happen, will happen.”
“The likelihood is I will be at Bournemouth for another year,” Fraser said, as quoted by the Evening Express.
“And what will happen, will happen.
“That is all I can really say about it.
“No-one has really spoken to me about it.”
Fraser has been in fanstastic form for Bournemouth over the last 12 months and it’s no surprise to see him being touted for a move to a massive club.
Staying at Bournemouth won’t do him any harm but if Eddie Howe’s side struggle then it could make things a bit harder for Fraser when his deal ends in 12 months.
Aberdeen likely won’t have been banking on getting something back from Fraser moving but it could hurt Derek McInnes transfer budget as the club’s Kingsford Stadium project gets underway.
