He came up through Aberdeen’s youth academy, joining the club aged just 11-years-old. Clubs in Scotland and in the EFL are said to be interested in his signature, which would mean the Dons would not be entitled to compensation for the player.

New Aberdeen boss Jim Goodwin did not see a future for the winger in the first team and Maclver was not offered fresh terms. He is now free to find a new club.
