Aberdeen defender Richard Foster believes it will be a big blow if top scorer Lee Miller opts to quit the Dons this summer.
Miller's contract at Pittodrie is set to end and the 24-year-old striker is mulling over a fresh offer by Aberdeen.
Foster and his team-mates have been teasing Miller over whether he will sign a new deal and are hopeful he will stay at the club.
But the former Falkirk and Dundee United man has played a key role for the Dons this season, chalking up 12 goals so far to lead their scoring charts, so Foster is wary of him choosing a fresh start.
"If the contract's right for him and his family are happy here, then it's down to him," he said.
"We have a laugh and a joke but it'll be him who decides and we won't be able to sway him.
"He's done really well for us this year, he gives us something different. He gives us an aerial threat.
"He has chipped in with a good few goals and his overall play helps us the way we play. I think he'll be a big loss to us if he goes."
However, Aberdeen have been strongly linked with a move for Dundee United midfielder Mark Kerr, who is also out of contract in the coming weeks.
