Former Manchester City keeper Weaver joined the Dons on a six-month deal in the summer, but has made two just two appearances this season.

However, McInnes wants the 34-year-old to continue to provide cover for first choice Jamie Langfield and expects a decision before Christmas.

"There is still a willingness to keep Nicky here," said McInnes. "Hopefully in the next week or so we will know either way."

McInnes is also waiting for a decision on the future of Hector, who has made 17 appearances since arriving on loan from Reading in the summer.

He added in the Evening Express: "We still have a desire to keep Michael but it will depend on the conversation he has with Reading.

"Hopefully we will find out in the next week or two."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
