Hull City

Swansea and Hull quoted £3.5m in pursuit of Scotland international



Aberdeen have slapped a £3.5m price tag on Championship target Scott McKenna, according to reliable journalist Alan Nixon.

Swansea City are chasing the Scotland international and this price tag is unlikely to deter them from watching him in Europa League action against Burnley next week.

Hull City are also interested in McKenna and have had a £2m bid rejected for his services.

The 21-year-old has established himself as a regular in the Aberdeen side after impressing in loan stints with Ayr United and Alloa Athletic in previous seasons.

The towering centre-half enjoyed a solid breakthrough campaign with the Dons, playing 34 games and earning his first senior Scotland call-up and he even captained his national side against Mexico.

McKenna has a contract with Aberdeen until 2023 and is rated as one of the best young Scottish players around.

Swansea and Hull now know the price they have to pay to land the youngster.

The Verdict

At such a young age, stumping up this transfer fee could prove to be a shrewd long-term investment.

Just look at the model of Andrew Robertson or Callum Paterson – both players have come to England as young Scottish defenders and thrived.

Swansea must pursue this deal after losing Kyle Bartley and potentially Mawson too.
