Four Future Stars Offered New Deals

ABERDEEN manager Mark McGhee has confirmed the club have offered new contracts to exciting youngsters Fraser Fyvie, Peter Pawlett, Michael Paton and Chris Maguire.

Future star Pawlett, 18, signed a new three-year deal in February, but McGhee has been thrilled with his progress and the club is keen to reward him with an increased contract.

Scotland Under-17 captain Fyvie, 16, is one of the country's hottest properties and the Dons are desperate to tie him to a new deal despite the midfielder currently being out injured.

Twenty-year-old Paton has matured greatly, including recovering from an unpunished assault from Rangers' animal Lee McCulloch to rip Steven Whittaker a new one at Ibrox this season, while Maguire, 20, has played in over 100 games in the last few seasons and scored a potential goal-of-the-season volley against Hamilton.

Aberdeen FC legend and Director of Football Willie Miller has opened talks with the quartet as a matter of urgency, and all have all been offered new terms.

And boss Mark McGhee said: "Offers have been made to Peter Pawlett, Fraser Fyvie, Michael Paton and Chris Maguire.

"They have all done well this season and I feel they should be on better deals.

"Willie Miller is talking to the boys and their agents just now and I am confident we can get all the deals tied up over the next couple of weeks.

"I believe all four of these guys can do really well for the club.

"If they continue to develop then they can help take Aberdeen forward and we can all get the rewards.

"Hopefully we can keep them at Pittodrie for the next three or four years."

The news comes hot on the heels of reports that Mark McGhee wants to extend the contracts of more experienced players Mark Kerr, Ricky Foster and... er... his name escapes me... oh yes, Gary McDonald.
