TalkSPORT, the BBC and the Scottish Sun say the defender has stated his desire to move on in the current transfer window.

Manager Derek McInnes revealed on Sunday that Aberdeen had rejected bids from both Nottingham Forest and Queens Park Rangers for the Scottish international.

QPR have reportedly moved on to other targets with manager Mark Warburton said to be keen on a reunion with ex-Rangers centre-back David Bates.

Any potential suitor in the top two tiers of English football would have until 5pm on Thursday to push through a deal before the close of the transfer window.

The 22-year-old has made 82 appearances for the Dons after graduating from the club's youth academy. He exploded on to the scene with a stellar 2017/18 campaign, which saw him earn a Young Player of the Year nomination from PFA Scotland.
