Aberdeen boss Stephen Glass has called on Rovers to meet the Dons’ asking price if they want to prise Ryan Hedges away from the club this month.

Rovers had a bid rejected for Hedges in the summer and retain an interest in the Welsh forward who is out of contract this summer.

However, despite reports, the club haven’t submitted a fresh bid for the 26-year-old this month.

Instead Rovers would prefer to sign Hedges on a pre-contract deal that would see him arrive at Ewood Park on a free transfer in the summer.

Hedges looks certain to leave Aberdeen with the club having admitted defeat in their quest to keep hold of his services.

But he remains part of their plans and scored in their Boxing Day win over Dundee before the winter break.

Glass says that will remain the case unless anyone comes in with a suitable bid this month.

“It feels like it when he doesn't want to sign the contract that's been put in front of him,” he told Sky Sports.

“You keep hearing that there are other clubs that have engaged him, even though they shouldn't have.

“In reality, it looks like that's going to happen but until such things happen, he's an Aberdeen player.

“If a pre-contract does happen in January, he's here until the summer unless Blackburn or whoever offer the right sum to get him now.”
