Given the 27-year-old’s level of contribution from the bench, coupled with the possibility of Taki Minamino departing the club, one might have thought that a replacement of sorts would have been sorted this summer.
The official club line, as it stands, being peddled, however, is that no further business (in the form of incomings) will occur following the addition of Aberdeen’s highly-rated fullback, Calvin Ramsay.
