One of Scottish football’s longest-running transfer sagas of the summer is apparently nearing an end after Aberdeen striker Stevie May reportedly ‘agreed’ his exit from Pittodrie ahead of a move to St. Johnstone.

The Daily Record reports that the on/off deal is finally back on with May’s Pittodrie exit now imminent with a two-year deal, with the option of a further 12 months, apparently on the table at McDiarmid Park.

May looked close to returning to his old club before the deal collapsed earlier this summer but he now looks to be heading back to familiar surroundings after a difficult spell in Aberdeen.

After being given a stupid squad number that tied in with the Dons’ European Cup Winners’ Cup win in 1983, May was always swimming against the tide in the Granite City.

A return to St. Johnstone should be good for the striker and give him the chance to get his career back on track and play regularly again.

May was part of the Saints side that lifted the Scottish Cup and made his breakthrough at McDiarmid Park so is going back to a club that saw him play the best football of his career.

If a deal is done quickly, May could even make his second debut this weekend against Kilmarnock.
