Derek McInnes insists Aberdeen are ready to move on to other targets if they cannot strike a deal for Matty Kennedy this month.

The St Johnstone winger has agreed a pre-contract to move to Pittodrie in the summer but McInnes is keen to push the transfer through before the window closes.

Saints boss Tommy Wright, however, is desperate to keep hold of Kennedy and so far talks between the clubs have failed to find a solution.

Reports have claimed that Curtis Main and Michael Devlin have been suggested as a possible makeweight but McInnes knows he does not have much time to waste while the dialogue continues. Instead, he will turn his attention elsewhere if an agreement cannot be struck with Wright.

McInnes – who has secured the signing of Ross County’s Mark Gallagher for his development squad – said: “There’s been no further talks on Matty. There were talks between both clubs on Friday.

Glasgow Times:

“Obviously I would like [to have him here now] as there’s obviously an urgency for any manager to make the necessary changes.

“So we’ll look at other targets if nothing can be done there.

“We’ve got one or two other things in the pipeline that we could maybe do. I am keen to make two or three changes.

“We’ve got Dylan McGeouch in already and hopefully by the time the window closes we’ll have managed to get another couple in.”
