Kilmarnock are the latest side to express an interest in out of favour Aberdeen striker Stevie May. The Daily Record is reporting that the Rugby Park club have given permission to speak to the attacker.
However, Killie are just one of a number of teams that want to sign May. Dundee and his former club St Johnstone are also keen to sign the player.
Move makes sense for Kilmarnock
The move makes sense for Kilmarnock. They will be trying to win back the club’s supporters following the embarrassing Europa League exit to Connah’s Quay Nomads.
They need a goalscorer to replace Kris Boyd, and have obviously identified May as that player.
However, the player might not feel that a move to Kilmarnock is the right one for him. Particularly after the loss to Connah’s Quay which ended any involvement in European competition.
Move may not appeal to striker
May might feel that a move to former club St Johnstone or Championship side Dundee is more appealing at the moment.
What looks to be certain is that May won’t be an Aberdeen player at the start of the Premiership season. With only two weeks until the kick-off, all the interested teams will be hoping to get May on board for the first game of the season.
Therefore, it looks like the player’s future will be decided sooner rather than later.
