Scott McKenna is set to travel with Aberdeen to Croatia, despite the uncertainty that surrounds his future. The BBC have revealed that McKenna is going with his team-mates to Croatia ahead of the Europa League qualifier against Rijeka.
McKenna has joined up with his team-mates even though he handed in a transfer request to Aberdeen recently. His request was immediately turned down by the Pittodrie club.
English clubs interested in player
Even though McKenna has travelled to Croatia, does that mean he will play in the game? Only time will tell. The problem is that teams in England have registered their interest in signing McKenna.
The English transfer window closes at five o’clock on Thursday. That is two hours before McKenna is due to play for Aberdeen in Croatia.
What happens if valuation is met?
Both QPR and Nottingham Forest are reportedly interested in signing the centre-back. If any of those teams or another team meet Aberdeen’s valuation for the McKenna, it will be interesting to see what happens.
The Dons would not like to lose one of their most important players just hours before a European tie. But if the club’s valuation is met, they will have to make a decision.
The fact that McKenna has travelled to Croatia would indicate that he is likely going to play in the game. Anything could happen in the next 24 hours when it comes to transfers though.
