However, MLS outfit New York City have seemingly made a U-turn in their chase for the Scotland international.

After initially cooling their interest, they’re keen to take him to the Big Apple.

Yesterday, Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes denied Mackay-Steven underwent medical at Pompey and hadn’t given up hope of keeping the wide man at the Scottish Premiership side.
