News coming out of Pittodrie today is the stunning story that Jimmy Calderwood could be set to bring back Jackie McNamara back to Scotland.

The reports are unconfirmed at the moment and Jimmy would obviously have to get his best salesman patter out to tempt the 33 times capped Scotland defender to Pittodrie as Jackie will be on big money at Molineux and many other clubs will be interested in a defender of his calibre who is available for free.

Jimmy is aware that McNamara would need to take a substantial wage cut but perhaps a deal is closer to being struck than he will admit as it`s been said that the Dons wanted to move for him in the January window but held off until he became a free agent.

Jackie is 33 but by all accounts has been playing well at Wolverhampton Wanderers although hampered by a cruciate knee injury during his time there and it was only in 2004 that he was awarded the Football Writers Player of the Year whilst still with Celtic.

Calderwood would only say ‘We are discussing several options and are close to sorting one of them out. I will provide more information when a deal has been done.’

Also being mentioned is Hibernian star Michael Stewart who has been a victim of the behind the scenes fighting at Easter Road which has left him frozen out by John Collins.

Michael has been training will Premiership new boys Sunderland and it is currently thought that he would be too expensive for Aberdeen in the wage department.

Would Jackie and Michael be a good addition to the Dons team next season?

Would his experience be a valuable addition and another step in the right direction despite his age?
