Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes is ready to use the proceeds of the sale of Kenny McLean to try to lure Chris Cadden and Dylan McGeouch to Pittodrie.
McLean completed his £200,000 move to English Championship club Norwich City yesterday but will return to Pittodrie today on a loan deal for the rest of the season.
While McLean will return to the Dons Aberdeen manager McInnes is reportedly weighing up moves for Motherwell winger Chris Cadden and Hibernian midfielder Dylan McGeouch.
Cadden, 21, has 18 months remaining on his current deal at Fir Park but McInnes is tracking the attacker’s progress.
The Steelmen rejected a £100,000 offer from Hearts for Cadden in the summer, labelling the bid as derisory. Well also turned down a £400,000 offer from Oxford United in the last window but the Dons could be set to test Well’s resolve by making an offer.
Former Celtic midfielder McGeouch, a mainstay in Neil Lennon’s Hibs team, is out of contract in the summer and has been offered a three-and-a-half year deal to stay at Easter Road.
Reports claim the 25-year-old is keen on a fresh challenge, however, and McInnes is ready to offer the player the chance to move to Pittodrie.
