Recent sales netting Aberdeen some vital cash - Brown

Aberdeen manager Craig Brown has revealed that sales of five players in recent times has netted the club some much-needed funds.

Yesterday, the Dons completed the transfer of young midfielder Fraser Fyvie to Wigan Athletic and although Brown did not specify how much they made, he did admit that a bit of money had been flowing back into the Pittodrie coffers in the last couple of years.

"The club has managed to earn money for five players now in the last two years," Brown said.

"We took in more than a million for (Chris) Maguire, (Sone) Aluko, (Richard) Foster and (Jack) Grimmer.

"Now you can add Fyvie to the list. I am not involved in these discussions but he has not left for nothing.

"I won't see any of the money though. It will go straight back into the club and into the bank. I don't have a problem with that given the current situation. That is just the way it is.

"The budget for the season was calculated with the assumption Fyvie would be away.

"Nothing has changed but there is still provision for at least one more signing. I can have no complaints."
