No chance of it being Dunne. He said it will be a signing that will get the fans excited, I think by contrast they'd have pitchforks sharpened if they paid us six figures for Dunne.

Shame...

From The Sun -

EXCLUSIVE by Derek McGregor

St Mirren have slapped a £350,000 price tag on Charles Dunne amid continuing Aberdeen interest.

Dons boss Jim Goodwin signed the defender, 29, for Saints a year ago on a free from Motherwell.

Goodwin’s about to sign another left-sided stopper, but wants more depth in key areas like the heart of the defence.

However, Saints are in no mood to do their former boss any favours, four months after he swapped Paisley for Aberdeen.

Dunne’s in the final year of his contract and is currently in rehab from a foot fracture suffered in the April home defeat to Rangers.

The ex-Republic of Ireland Under-21 cap spent four years at Motherwell and played for Oldham, Crawley, Wycombe and Blackpool.

He played 28 games for Saints last season, helping them to ten clean sheets

In a world of ridiculous transfer fees, £350k for Charles Dunne is by far the most outrageous. I’m all for ripping off Goodwin but at least make it realistic. Hopefully Dunne kicks up a stink about being held back or priced out of a move and player power pulls trump.

If there's an ounce of truth in this article (IF), I'd be pretty content that we're not letting contracted players leave on the cheap.

This has been happening for years and its about time that we start holding out for more cash.

Everyone on here and Twitter needs to shut up. Of course £350k is a great price for such an excellent player. Would he a travesty to let him go for a figure so low, but we shouldn't be standing in the way of such a good move.

Absolutely, it is a step up for him to move from our modest facilities to the more advanced rehab facilities Aberdeen have.

I don’t know what’s so funny tbh, if someone if daft enough to pay £50k for Cammy McPherson when he was available for free, then 350k for Dunne, when he’s got a year left seems ok.

Six figures would be good business for Dunne, let alone £350k. Someone at the club seeing if Goodwin has as big an obsession for signing players from us as Jack Ross did.

I like big Dunne. One of the fastest centre halves I've seen at St Mirren. I thought he had a decent season last year, if a bit stop start. 

That said if we can get anything like £350k I'd move him on. Although, I don't believe that figure is anywhere close to being realistic. 

If Goodwin is looking to spend 6 figures on someone like Dunne, then I don't think he'll last long at Aberdeen. Dunne, on a free transfer, would probably be a reasonable addition to the Aberdeen squad. But he's not someone you could rely on to play 30+ games a season, let alone guarantee you push on a level.

I like Dunne and I think Robinson does too.

 

If this is true then effectively we've said we don't want to sell him unless someone is ready to pay a pretty crazy fee of £350k. Fair enough. 🤷‍♂️

Has the club officially stated the 350k price tag or are we all getting excited by The Sun picking a random 6 digit number?

I reckon this is simply the media trying to continue the Dunne transfer mill and nothing more.

I absolutely don't think this means the club is stopping selling folk for peanuts either.

No.

The "journalist" probably got the figure from Transfermarkt website.

Although he's got a value of £315K on there. Maybe he misheard someone reading it out to him.

Nom this will be The Sun making it up as usual.

However the club will have a figure in mind, probably somewhere between £150k-£200k.
