Chief Executive Duncan Fraser stated "We met with Jonny's agent Des Byrne prior to the last game of the season and both Jonny and his agent felt that this was the right move for him. Negotiations were carried out in an extremely professional way and I am pleased to say he has chosen Aberdeen ahead of a number of potential clubs. Jonny was a key target for Craig and we are delighted with the outcome".

That is a PR statement if ever I saw one.  The club are taking a very big gamble here by making this public.  If Hayes ends up signing for someone else, there'll be a whole lot more disillusioned folk unwilling to purchase season tickets.  It would be disappointing because he's a good player.  If the club show as little ambition in the transfer market this season, and by that I mean failing to sign any players that turn my head, or signing crappy tenth rate players like Uchechi and Chalali when there absolutely has to be better players in the lower leagues in this country, I wont be at Pittodrie next season.  AFC are as close as dead to me as they've ever been.
