Stevie May flew back into Scotland early on Friday with the rest of his St Johnstone team-mates following their Europa League exit at the hands of Spartak Trnava.
And while the rest started preparing for Sunday’s league game away to Ross County, May was pondering whether he will end up at Rotherham or Sheffield Wednesday.
He netted Saints’ goal in their 1-1 draw in Slovakia. The Perth men went down 3-2 on aggregate, giving a gritty display in the away leg that so very nearly saw them qualify for the next stage.
Manager Tommy Wright said after the match that “this could be Stevie’s last game for us”.
Rotherham manager Stevie Evans said earlier last night that his club has had a bid for May accepted by St Johnstone, believed to be 800,000, and he’s waiting to speak to the player and his representative.
Sheffield Wednesday boss Stuart Gray said: “We’ve got a bid on the table but we’re not the only club chasing a quality player who has shown he can score goals on a regular basis. Fingers crossed we can get this over the line.”
With or without May at Ross County, Saints will be prepared for the Highland teams’ challenge according to Tommy.
“We have a few tired legs but we’re ready to go again on Sunday,” he commented.
“We were, naturally, delighted to take the lead in Trnava on Thursday night but, in the second half, we didn’t control the game enough.”
