Queen’s Park are set to hold talks with Aberdeen over a move for Ethan Ross as the midfielder remains in limbo over his future after leaving Pittodrie in the summer.
Ross left the Dons at the end of his contract but the Pittodrie side are due a six-figure training compensation fee when Ross signs a contract somewhere and, the Daily Record report, Queen’s Park will look to discuss what can be done to strike a deal.
The midfielder spent time on loan with Southampton after his Pittodrie contract came to an end but wasn’t offered terms by the Premier League side and the ambitious Spiders want to add him to their ranks.
Laurie Ellis’ side have added a number of talented young players in recent months since selling Hampden and have made no secret of their plans to recruit highly-rated young talent and look to sell them on in the future.
Bright future ahead for Queen’s Park
The 20-year-old has had stints on loan with Dunfermline and Raith Rovers but never managed to break into the Aberdeen first team on a consistent basis, making only 14 appearances for the Dons during his time at the club.
The Spiders are aiming for back-to-back promotions and have made a strong start to the League One campaign after winning last season’s League Two title.
While there is still a long way to go for the country’s oldest club, there’s some really positive signs that their recent success isn’t just going to be a flash in the pan but help restore some of their past glories.
With money tight in Scottish football though – and Queen’s Park seemingly having bottomless pockets just now – it will be interesting to see how Aberdeen respond.
