    MLS side New York City have approached Aberdeen for permission to speak to winger Gary Mackay-Steven.

    The Scotland international's contract expires in the summer, and the 28-year-old is free to talk to foreign clubs about a possible transfer.


    Mackay-Steven has just returned to full training with the Aberdeen squad at a winter training camp in Dubai following eight games out after suffering concussion.


    he Scottish winger suffered a serious head injury in the 1-0 Scottish League Cup final defeat to former club Celtic on December 2 when he clashed heads with Dedryck Boyata and was taken to hospital.

    Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes is keen for Mackay-Steven to stay at Pittodrie, and has offered the winger a new deal at the club.


    Mackay-Steven joined Aberdeen from Celtic in February 2015 and has played 31 times for the Dons, scoring five goals.

    "We got notification from New York City that they wanted to speak to his representatives, as is their right," McInnes told Sky Sports News.

    Gary was oblivious to it. I spoke to him this morning and he knew nothing about it. When players get into this stage of their contract, you have got to accept you are in a fight to keep them.

    "We have been in a fight to get Gary and others to commit for a while now but it is their right to let their contract run down and assess their options.

    "All we've asked Gary and his agent is 'are we still in the running to keep you?' and they said 'absolutely'."

    Aye he has to grab that opportunity I'd say. At the stage where he probably isn't going to get a better move football wise (maybe english championship) and definitely not a better offer lifestyle wise

    Forget the league and the dough will take care of itself.

    He’d be aff his rocker to turn down the NYC lifestyle over Aberdeen.

    What an opportunity for him.

    I’d give it a month before there’s a news story about him being pulled from the Hudson River.

    Just clocked this :56:

    He joined us in 2015 and left in 2017 and im pretty sure he’s played more than 31 games for the sheep and scored more than 5 goals:56:

    EDIT: Just checked he’s played 44 league games and scored 8 goals, couldn’t be bothered checking the rest.

    Some people don't want to move abroad especially if they have family (unsure about him). However the interest will allow him to up his salary demands to Aberdeen.

    4 years in new York n he'll be set financially. I know people can be homesick but he'll still be able to come back, obvious choice imo.
