Aberdeen have not received any offers for Scotland international defender Scott McKenna.
Reports on Tuesday indicated that champions Celtic had made an offer for McKenna, in a bid to strengthen their defensive options before the closure of the transfer window.
However it is understood no bids have been received by the Dons and they would not welcome any, given McKenna’s importance to their hopes for the season.
The 21-year-old is currently sidelined until after the international break with a hamstring injury picked up in the draw with Rangers. Celtic are in the market for a centre-back after Belgian international Dedryck Boyata professed his intentions to leave the club.
McKenna is under contract at Pittodrie until 2023 and has been on the radar of English Championship sides Swansea and Hull City. The Tigers had four offers rejected for him in January, with the final bid of £1million being kicked out by Aberdeen.
Manager Derek McInnes believes the defender will bypass the Championship and go straight to the Premiership when he eventually leaves the Dons. McInnes also added that he rated McKenna as the best defender in Scotland, after he finished last season captaining his club in a Scottish Cup semi-final and his country against Mexico.
