Adam Rooney looks set to leave Aberdeen to join non-league Salford City today and is set for a wage hike.
It is understood that the Dons striker is moving closer to leaving Pittodrie to switch to the English National League side – and has been offered a deal worth £4,000 a week.
Reports surfaced at the weekend linking the Irishman with Salford, while the 30-year-old missed the Reds’ abandoned friendly with Cove Rangers at the Balmoral Stadium on Sunday.
The speculation has continued to increase and sources indicated to the Evening Express yesterday that Rooney, who joined Aberdeen in January 2014, is set to move to Moor Lane.
Rooney still has two years left on his contract with the Dons so Salford will also have to pay a transfer fee.
Salford are ambitious and they are aiming to gain promotion to the Football League for the first time under manager Graham Alexander.
The former Scotland international Alexander is trying to recruit players who can help them get promoted again this term.
