Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes insists the Dons are not under pressure to sell one of their key players in this transfer window.
The Dons boss has strengthened his squad in the last six weeks with the arrival of Tommie Hoban, Ryan Edmondson, Marley Watkins and Ross McCrorie.
The larger squad has given McInnes several options, but he says the club’s position on selling key players remains unchanged.
The Dons boss said: “Before the window closes there will be some tweaking of the squad, but, in terms of selling players we don’t want to lose, we are under no pressure and – unless our valuation is met – we’ve got our best players under contract for the foreseeable future.
“There will be clubs who think they can take advantage, but we’re robust enough to withstand that.
“I expect us over the next couple of windows to have to deal with offers for key players.”
Aberdeen’s ‘incredible’ squad depth was discussed on this week’s Northern Goal podcast:
The Aberdeen manager will trim his squad before the window closes on October 5 with some younger players set to go out on loan, but he hopes he can keep his squad together for the campaign.
He said: “We’re in the process just now of putting a few of the younger ones out and you will see a few going out in the next few weeks.
“I’d love to be able to run with this squad for the season, but we’re always open to these offers coming in during a window.
“When a window closes you take a sigh of relief and get on with the job.”
