Skysports.com understands Aberdeen star Chris Maguire has rejected the club's latest contract offer.
The highly-rated 22-year-old is out of contract at Pittodrie in the summer and could leave on a free transfer.
Aberdeen would be due a compensation fee if Maguire was to leave on a free transfer, but that would be minimal compared to his worth in a transfer fee.
Maguire, who has been named in the Scotland squad to face Brazil this weekend, has enjoyed a fine season for Aberdeen this term, netting 10 goals
A number of clubs in England and Scotland are thought to be waiting in the wings to sign Maguire at the end of the season.
Maguire's agent, Willie McKay, has revealed several clubs are interested in the player and that he will make a decision on his future in the summer.
"Chris has rejected Aberdeen's latest contract offer as it stands," McKay told skysports.com.
"Chris fully understands the current economics in Scottish football, but he feels the offer does not match what he feels he deserves.
"Chris has been at Aberdeen for ten years and maybe the time is right for a new challenge.
"I am talking to a number of clubs about Chris and we will decide what is the best option for him."
