Aberdeen striker Stevie May does not yet know where he will be playing next season, after a move to former club St Johnstone broke down.

According to the Evening Express, the player had passed a medical and was set to return to his former side. However, the move will now not be happening after talks between the teams broke down.

The report goes on to claim that Dundee and St Mirren are now aiming to sign the player.

Agreed to end contract

May will be disappointed not to be returning to his former club. He seemed eager to return to Perth. So much so that the Daily Record reported that he agreed to end his Aberdeen contract early to get the move through.


Therefore, it looks like May will not be returning to the team he helped win the Scottish Cup in 2016.

Real blow to Saints boss

The news will be a real blow to St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright. After a poor run of results in the Betfred Cup, he would have been hoping that May would have kickstarted the Saints’ season.

However, it is not to be, and May will most likely not be wearing a St Johnstone strip this season.

It remains to be seen who May’s next club will be. However, both Dundee and St Mirren would be glad to have him on their books, but for different reasons.
