Aberdeen manager Craig Brown still hopes to bring in a replacement for Fraser Fyvie after conceding the teenager will leave the club this summer.
English Premier League sides Fulham and Wigan have been credited with interest in the 19-year-old who made 33 appearances for the club last season.
With his contract set to expire in December, the attacker has indicated his desire to move on with Brown aiming to add to the captures of Niall McGinn and Jonny Hayes.
After watching his team beat Arbroath 5-1 in a friendly, the Dons boss told RedTV: "I think with maybe another signing to give us cover we'll be ready to start the season.
"We have got several irons in the fire but if we don't it's not the end of the world. We have signed seven young players - four under-19s and three from Forfar."
In regards to Fyvie, Brown added: "There's been interest, I'm told, from Fulham and Wigan.
"He has got his agent on the case trying to get him sorted before the start of the season."
