Aberdeen chief executive said: “When craig and I met with Jack recently Craig emphasised that he would continue to be developed by being involved with the first team with a view to him becoming a first team squad member next season.  From a football perspective everyone at the club hoped that he should remain with the club to complete his development which we believe in the long term would have been in the best interests.  However in the end he and his advisor thought otherwise.  It was clear that a decision to move south was already the preferred option which was dissapointing.”
