The 18-year-old's performances on the wing have drawn praise and almost inevitably speculation linking him with a move south of the border.

Aberdeen legend Willie Miller saw Fraser at close quarters as the club's director of football development and has said: "It is frightening to think what he might accomplish in the game."

However, Brown has warned that a move to the Premier League may not be in Fraser's best interests, citing the example of ex-Don Fraser Fyvie of a move that he feels has not paid off.

"We will be doing everything in our power to keep Ryan," declared the former Scotland boss. "That's all I can promise fans at this stage.

"He plays with maturity which is why he has come through so strongly.

"Look at what happened to Fraser Fyvie, who went to Wigan and never features in their match-day squad.

"Would you be better in front of 10,000 at Pittodrie like Ryan or be like Fyvie playing on the Wigan training ground?

"I hope he can see the bigger picture and doesn't go for short-term gain."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
