Diamond calm about Aberdeen departure talk

Aberdeen defender Zander Diamond says he is not getting too caught up with any transfer talk involving him and Heart of Midlothian.

The 26-year old has been heavily linked with a shift to Edinburgh this summer but he insists that he is currently focused on the job at hand with his current club.

"Some people are assuming it is certain I'll go but until I have signed a deal elsewhere I am an Aberdeen player," he said.

"The situation hasn't bothered me as you go out and treat every training session or game as if it is your last regardless.

"You have to put in performances no matter what as you can go under if you think about it too much but it can also spur you on.

"You don't like things dragging on but you need to keep it on the backburner until they make a decision to offer you something."
