    Milne will sell him for around £1.5 - £2m no doubt about it.
    McInnes probably gets a decent input into any offers that come in for players but Milne will sell when he wants.
    You could also say that thanks to Alex McLeish that Scott McKennaís profile and transfer fee has certainly been upped a bit. McLeish has given the lad a platform to encourage a very decent career and he certainly believes he is his main centre back now.

    After our tooling up has given us a bit of a lift then I expect mayhem to persue after the first match has been played. 😂

    Why not?
    Bruce mounded Harry Maguire and then sold to the premiership and into the England squad.
    He had a nae bad career as a centre half, so why do you think McKenna wouldnít be enthused about the possibility?

    Not a chance we'll cave in for McKenna. Club is financially astute and secure, he is a HUGE and extremely valuable commodity for Aberdeen. There is a derth of top quality centre half's the world over.

    We have a huge asset on our hands. McInnes and Milne will both know that.

    Ryan Fraser was a huge asset. Different set of circumstances obviously but don’t underestimate Milnes ability to f*ck this up from a reasonable position of strength.

    The club is not financially secure as they need around 30 for a stadium. Raking in say 5m would go along way to keeping the remaining needed monies down.

    Vastly different. Not even a comparison.

    To be fair, it was bad timing that Fraser's contract was up just as he was bursting on to the scene. It also didn't help that the refs were giving him no protection against the SPL's assorted hatchetmen.

    Funny how we are made out to be the negative ones for encouraging a stronger Aberdeen team who always gives themselves a chance of winning any match. Also funny how the so called positive supporters are overly enthusiastic about our trophy less season.

    Strange thing these football forums at times!
    So, let me gets this right. If you are a positive type of supporter, confident that we had the necessary tools in the box at the end of last season to finish ahead of Hibs and Sevco, thatís make you a happy clapper **? And if you reckon Milne wouldnít fold at an offer of £1.5m of McKenna, that also makes you a happy clapper **?

    ** Definition of happy clapper being somebody who clapps at any old sh1te, irrespective of what the quality is? Someone who thinks the manager, for example, can do wrong?

    Listen, Iím still raginí at that semi-final performance v Well, plus the League Cup quarter performance v the same team. Both performances can we directed to our managerís door, due mainly to poor transfer recruitment, which could be put down to his head being turned by managerial offers, around about the transfer window times. I also think we should have made the Europa League groups stages at least once, out of 4 attempts.

    But, we are where we are. DM ainít going anywhere soon, whether we like it or not. Me, I sense a renewed vigour from our manager, and would prefer him to stay and have one last go at it, and am hopeful and confident that we will have a decent summer transfer window that can set us up for a good season next up, irrespective of how Sevco perform.

    And thatís not feckiní happy clappiní, its realism borne out of common sense.

    Slow down, he's miles from a top quality centre half. He's a loon who has came onto a game when only recently he couldn't get a start at Ayr United. Good luck to him and I think we'd bite at 2M, but top quality, come on. He'll hopeful kick on.

    And as I said in an earlier post, McInnes and Milne deserve praise for tying McKenna up until 2023. Hopefully they recognise the value of McKenna so if and when the time comes to sell, we get a very good price for him.

    Also, given that we have done consistently well in the league and have consistently qualified for Europe (unlike when Fraser was here), hopefully this will make McKenna want to hang around for a while.

    And hopefully Andy Robertson's success at Liverpool will make Scott realise that there are opportunities to go to the top (or close to it) in the EPL and he doesn't necessarily need to move if more mid table Championship teams are the next to come calling.

    Hamilton playing hardball over compensation for Feguson? Seems like it's going to that tribunal thingy.

    You obviously understand why McInnes has a few doubters now. It took a while though.

    I seen that on the news. They are looking for £900,000 and we have offered £100,000. I reckon we are probably not that far off with what we have offered.

    They shouldn’t worry. I heard a Nigerian Prince has died & left them £320m. The guy sorting out the will just needs their bank details to transfer the cash

    900K? Where on earth could they possibly pluck that figure from? If the tribunal come up with a figure even remotely close to that then there should be no question of us keeping him. Close to a million for nothing more than a prospect that has achieved little so far. McKenna must be worth billions.

    Lol. They have more chance of getting the £320m from a Nigerian Prince than they have of getting £900,000 from Stewart Milne.
