Aberdeen hopeful teenager Fraser will opt to stay
Aberdeen boss Craig Brown hopes want-away winger Ryan Fraser will stay with the club. The 18-year-old has turned down a new contract at Pittodrie and is looking for a move during the January transfer window.
Brown said: "At the moment, there have not been any offers for Ryan, but that could change in the next few weeks.
"As to changing his mind, I am not sure. How the fans treated Ryan might make him change his mind. I am not trying to twist his arm or anything and I won't be begging him to sign a new contract.
"But if he comes back and says he wants to stay, even if it's on the condition that we would accept an offer from a bigger club in the future, then we would all be happy.
"We will cross that bridge when we come to it, but at the moment he is an Aberdeen player and we will use him how we see fit."
Brown believes remaining with Aberdeen would be in Fraser's best interests.
He added: "I know Ryan would get better because he would benefit from getting games. He would also benefit from being a clear favourite with the Aberdeen fans.
"Obviously, our priority is the players who are committed to being here, but Ryan hasn't given any impression there will be any issues about his commitment."
