Goodwillie on Dons radar

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has refused to rule out a move for Blackburn Rovers striker David Goodwillie.
The forward has recently returned to Ewood Park following a six month loan spell with Dundee United, in which he netted six goals in 22 appearances at Tannadice.
Rovers manager Gary Bowyer said on Tuesday that despite interest from clubs, Goodwillie could return to the squad for their FA Cup third round replay away against Manchester City on Wednesday.
"He's a Blackburn Rovers player. There's been no official bids and, until there is, he's part of our squad again," said Bowyer.
The 24-year-old is likely behind Jordan Rhodes, DJ Campbell, Leon Best and Rudy Gestede in the pecking order at Blackburn, and Aberdeen boss McInnes has confirmed he would like to bring Goodwillie to Pittodrie, although conceded that the Scot's wages could prove a stumbling block in any deal the club might consider.
He said: "He's a player I am well aware of ? I played with him and I think he has got the quality to score goals.
"But any player coming in here would need to be on a deal that suits us. It certainly wouldn't be on figures that I think he was getting paid previously for his loan spell this season.
"Whether it's him or someone else coming, if I felt there was a player there who could improve us, or help us be successful this season, then I would ask the question."
