Aberdeen are chasing former St Patrick’s Athletic midfielder Chris Forrester after he was placed on the transfer list last week by Peterborough United.

The 25-year-old enjoyed plenty of success after his move to England, eventually being elevated to club captain at Posh.

He was also named in a provisional Republic of Ireland squad.

But a loss of form and change of manager at London Road has seen Steve Evans deem him surplus to requirements.

Owner Darragh MacAnthony confirmed that Aberdeen has shown interest but they had not progressed the deal as of yet.

He tweeted that they "have enquired but no fee agreed."

Forrester made his name in the League of Ireland after a series of stunning goals for the Saints.
