Aberdeen chief not too happy with Grimmer's move to Fulham

Aberdeen CEO Duncan Fraser has revealed he is not too pleased with the transfer of young gun Jack Grimmer to Fulham.

The 17-year old midfielder joined the Cottagers this week and the move has attracted the ire of the Dons chief who feels it is another massive loss for Scottish football.

"We received full value on the training compensation side, while agreeing to further add on terms," Fraser explained to the club's official website.

"We made Jack an extremely good offer to remain at Pittodrie, having signed him straight from school.

"[Manager] Craig Brown emphasised that he would continue to be developed by being involved with the first team, with a view to him becoming a full first team squad member next season.

"There is a bigger issue for Scottish football here in that we are beginning to see young talent moving south before they are fully developed with the teams they signed for as youngsters.

"It is an issue we shall seek to raise with the Scottish Premier League and Scottish Football Association to see what steps can be taken to safeguard our clubs' interests."
