ABERDEEN FC boss Craig Brown today confirmed he will be recalling all of his loan players this month.

 

Striker Mitch Megginson’s loan deal at Alloa was cut short so that he could be on the bench for Aberdeen FC’s Scottish Cup tie against Motherwell.

 

With an injury crisis still on-going, Aberdeen FC plan to recall Nicky Low, who is also at Alloa, and winger Peter Pawlett, who is with SPL rivals St Johnstone.

Peter Pawlett would prefer to extend his loan spell at St Johnstone - unless Aberdeen manager Craig Brown persuades the winger he can be a regular starter.

    The 21-year-old expects the two clubs to discuss his future this week.

    And those talks will come after he was praised for his performance in Saints' 2-2 draw with Hearts - his first start since September following injury.

    "If I go back and sit on the bench, it would not be ideal for me," said the Scotland Under-21 international.

    "I would probably like to stay here until the end of the season."

    In Pawlett's absence, Ryan Fraser has emerged as the wing talent at Pittodrie.

</blockquote> Peter Pawlett      But the 18-year-old has rejected the offer to extend his contract beyond next summer.

    That has led to speculation about a January sale if the Dons wish to cash in early on the Scotland Under-19 cap.

    Brown has warned that he only wants to use players committed to the club, leading some to suggest that Fraser might be used sparingly for the remainder of the season if he decides to remain at Pittodrie and leave as a free agent.

    Pawlett could be viewed as a replacement but would rather remain where he is seen as a first-team regular.

    "Ryan Fraser plays in my position, but hopefully Aberdeen can see the bigger picture," he said.

    "I am contracted to them for next season and I want to play week in, week out.

    "I was born in Hull, but my brothers support the club and I've been there since I started playing.

    "But your football career is short and I want to play."

    Pawlett also believes he owes St Johnstone a debt for their patience with him.

    "I was feeling sharp and playing well, but then I felt my hamstring go in training and it's happened a couple of times now," he said.

    "St Johnstone have been doing a lot for me.

    "It has been about nine weeks now without playing and then I got half an hour last weekend against St Mirren, so I'm a bit rusty at the minute."

    Pawlett was praised for his performance against Hearts by manager Steve Lomas and goalscorer Steven MacLean but believes he could have done better with a couple of efforts thwarted by fine shot-stopping from goalkeeper Jamie MacDonald.

    He recognises that such performances might persuade Brown to take him back to Aberdeen.

    "The manager might say to me 'prove me right'," said Pawlett.

    "I will just have to work harder as I am not going to accept sitting on the bench. I will work my socks off."

    Unfortunately for Pawlett, he will not have the chance to wear the blue socks of St Johnstone for the next two matches.

    Aberdeen are the Perth side's next Scottish Premier League opponents and the terms of his loan mean he cannot play against them - or in Monday's Scottish Cup tie at Cowdenbeath.

    "If Aberdeen had been knocked out by Motherwell, I could have played, but they won," he explained.

Aberdeen manager Craig Brown has told midfielder Peter Pawlett to focus on returning to Pittodrie to earn his place in the first team in January.

Pawlett has expressed a willingness to stay at St Johnstone for the second half of the  season if Saints want to extend his loan, but Brown wants the Scotland under-21 international back in the fold as the injury crisis continues to hit hard at the club.

Saints have this afternoon secured the services of on-loan winger Peter Pawlett for a further three weeks.

 

With Aberdeen FC reluctant to commit to anything longer term at the moment until the future of some of their other players is sorted, this arrangement allows Peter to continue with Saints for the matches against Dundee on Wednesday and the first match after the short break – the Sunday fixture against Motherwell at Fir Park on 20th January.

 

At that point it will become clearer as to whether an extension to the loan period through to the end of the season will be possible.

 

Manager Steve Lomas says “I’m grateful to Craig Brown for agreeing this. I can understand that he doesn’t want to commit to anything beyond that for the moment and it will be good to have Peter available for the two games that this extension takes in.”
