Derek Ferguson says Aberdeen have turned down two transfer bids for his son, Lewis Ferguson, amid talk of a move to Watford.
The midfielder has shone in Aberdeen’s Europa Conference League qualifiers this summer off the back of handing in a transfer request. English Premier League club Watford are believed to have had a bid rejected and Derek Ferguson says Aberdeen have not honoured a ‘gentleman’s agreement.’
He said (OG): “Well, there’s already been a couple of teams put in offers. And what I would say, they are good offers too.
“There is an [English Premier League] team that has come in and put the money up that was agreed when he renegotiated. He renegotiated a number of years ago and the reason was just to get on a par with some of the other players in terms of their wages.
“There was an agreement put in place, a shake of the hands, a gentleman’s agreement and it has not been honoured which is a bit disappointing. He’s ambitious that’s for sure, as a lot of young boys are.”
