Formartine United defender Jevan Anderson is on the radar of English League One side Burton Albion.
Anderson, a former Aberdeen youngster and son of Dons captain Russell, has been on trial with the Brewers, after having a similar period with Fleetwood Town earlier this season.
United manager Paul Lawson confirmed that Anderson, could be on the verge of a move to Burton, who are currently in a highly-respectable 10th place in League One under Nigel Clough.
Lawson said: “Jevan has been down on trial twice at Burton Albion. They are interested in him but we haven’t received a formal offer from them. Until that happens he is a Formartine United player but if an offer did come in for Jevan I certainly wouldn’t stand in his way.
“The club has said on a number of occasions that if a player gets an opportunity to better themselves, standing in their way is something we certainly wouldn’t do.
“If something is to come from this interest in Jevan it would present him with a great opportunity and it would also reflect well on the Highland League, so potentially it’s a great thing. But until we receive anything formally he’s a Formartine player.
“Similarly, earlier last season we granted permission for our striker Archie Macphee to go over and play a trial for Shamrock Rovers earlier in the season. Again, we wouldn’t like to stand in his way either, but up until this point in time we haven’t heard any more.”
The United boss also passed on his sympathies to Cove Rangers and their manager John Sheran, who was hospitalised after suffering a heart attack over the weekend.
Lawson added: “It’s not nice to hear – football certainly takes a back-seat when you hear news like this. I’m sure I speak for everyone here at Formartine United when I wish John a speedy recovery.”
