Scott McKenna looks likely to depart Aberdeen for Nottingham Forest after the Dons received a ‘significant offer’ for the Scotland international.

Whilst the Pittodrie club have not officially named a club, it has been widely reported that Nottingham Forest have offered in the region of £3 million for the centre-back.

He was badly missed yesterday as Derek McInnes’ side fell to a 3-0 defeat at home to Motherwell. All goals were conceded inside the opening 22 minutes, Mark O’Hara, Chris Long and Bevis Mugabi efforts stunning Aberdeen and sending them to their first defeat since opening day.

It’s back down to earth with a thud ahead of their Europa League third round qualifier with Sporting Lisbon midweek, having won six on the spin previous to the Well defeat.

McKenna will likely not feature as talks with the club he is negotiating with, believed to be Nottingham Forest, continue. McInnes confirmed after Sunday’s defeat that he would be shocked if a deal collapsed at this stage.
