Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has confirmed there is other interest in signing Dons outcast Stevie May afer a potential move to St. Johnstone collapsed – and admits it is down to the player and agent now to “get something sorted.”

May looked set for a return to the club he started his professional career before the deal fell through but a Pittodrie departure still looks likely to happen.

McInnes revealed that May “will have enough options” to mull over after falling out of favour with “a few” managers making contact with McInnes.

“I have spoken to a few managers over the last few days who like him and still want him. There is still enough interest in him that he will have enough options,” McInnes told the Press and Journal.

“It’s down to Stevie and his agent now to get something sorted.”

Wherever May ends up, he’ll be hoping he can have more success than he did at Pittodrie.

The striker never really showed what he was capable of during his time in Aberdeen and a move elsewhere would be ideal at this stage of his career.

One thing that he will be hoping is that any offer will keep him in the Scottish Premiership rather than having to step down into the Championship.
