Here is a round up of the Scottish Premiership transfer rumours on deadline day.
Aberdeen rejected Connor Barron bid
Aberdeen said no to a deal with Swansea City for Connor Barron on deadline night. Swansea wanted to get the Scottish under-21 midfielder, but Aberdeen, who don’t have a manager right now, refused to sell him.
The offer had performance based payoffs in the future, but Aberdeen didn’t agree to it. Barron has only five months left on his contract, and though Aberdeen offered him a new deal, nothing has been agreed yet.
The midfielder is not on big wages, and Aberdeen might lose him without getting much money in the summer.
Rangers rejects Galatasaray’s bid for Ridvan Yilmaz
According to Herald, Ridvan Yilmaz will stay on at Ibrox because Rangers rejected Galatasaray’s bid to sign him on deadline day. There have been a lot of rumours about Yilmaz’s future this month, with teams from Italy and Turkey being interested. Galatasaray tried twice to bring him back to Turkey, but Rangers didn’t change their mind about his value, which is £4m.
This is probably good news for Philippe Clement as Yilmaz has been playing really well since getting back into the team last month. Rangers paid £3.5m for the left back when they signed him in the summer of 2022.
Queen’s Park GK Callan McKenna joins Bournemouth
Callan McKenna, the young player from Queen’s Park, said no to Manchester United and instead decided to sign a contract with Bournemouth. The Scotland under-19 player’s choice means Queen’s Park will get at least £350,000.
There might be more money in the future based on how well he does in the first team for the English club. The total deal could be over £1million. Other teams like Brighton, Burnley, and Southampton were also interested in McKenna.
Hearts reject Toby Sibbick bid
Hearts rejected an offer for Toby Sibbick on Deadline Day because they wanted to keep the 24-year-old at Tynecastle. Sibbick, who can play in different positions in defense, has not been a regular in the Hearts team recently.
Charlie Adam’s Fleetwood Town wanted to get him on loan to help their team in the English third tier, but the Scottish Premiership side refused to let him go. They want to retain Sibbick, even though he’s not always playing.
