According to the Inverness Reds Online Aberdeen FC boss, Mark McGhee, has admitted that he is “disappointed” Motherwell winger Jim O’Brien has rejected the chance to sign for Aberdeen FC in favour of a move to Barnsley.

Apparently, the 21-year-old, who McGhee had been chasing since last summer, has agreed a three year contract with the Reds.

Maybe a lesser known fact is that O'Brien fancies himself as a bit of a tunester; recording his self penned track "Sadie Burd" whilst at Fir Park. Could this troubadour pen something for the Ponty End too?

Other whispers have also included (Left Back) Charlie Mulgrew of Aberdeen who is also close to signing and Jamie Mackie of Plymouth is apparently undergoing a medical at the club.

From the rumour mill, I have also heard that there could be loan deals or signings too in the pipeline for some of the following, Corry Evans, brother of Jonny and trainee at Manchester United, Roy O'Donovan from Sunderland, who is curently on loan at Hartlepool, Lee Carsley from Birmingham or Nicky Butt via Newcastle, although retirement and/or coaching for Butt has been widely speculated.

On the goal keeping front, there is also speculation that Richard Wright could join Barnsley on a Free. With an option of one further year at Ipswich Town, the Reds could be challenged on this one, but would increase important competition for the Number One shirt.
