The Dons have already rejected a £500,000 offer from the Bluebirds for the Irishman and McInnes suggested the Championship side must be ‘serious’ with their interest if they wish to sign the midfielder.

He told the Evening Express:

Like anyone, it’s flattering [for Hayes] to be linked with a good Championship club.

But we’ve created an environment here which is going to be a wrench for any player to leave.
