DONS SAY ‘NO’ TO HAYES BID
CARDIFF CITY’S hopes of strengthening their wing options suffered a blow after Aberdeen rejected a bid for Jonny Hayes.
Hayes, 29, has scored six goals in 22 matches for Aberdeen this term, and a move to the Bluebirds would see him return to the Football League for the first time since 2009, when he left Leicester for Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
Dons manager Derek McInnes says the offer for the Republic of Ireland international was not enough to tempt them.
He added: “The bid fell way short of our valuation and Jonny, as with all the squad, remains an integral part of the plans.”
