Cardiff made second bid for winger Hayes - McInnes

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has revealed Cardiff made a near-identical second bid for winger Jonny Hayes.

The Dons rejected the offer, believed to be worth about £500,000, and McInnes called for the situation to be resolved quickly as he looks ahead to a William Hill Scottish Cup fourth-round contest with Stranraer on Saturday.

McInnes said: "They have come in with another bid. They came in with a bid last night (Wednesday) but it was the exact same offer, just structured differently. There was no more money involved.

"We have a high regard for Jonny Hayes and all our players, and if they or anybody else has the same regard as Jonny Hayes as we do at the club, from every supporter to the chairman to myself to his team-mates, they will see that bid for what it is. He is worth a lot more to us than that."

Reading have completed the signing of Tiago Ilori from Liverpool, the two clubs have confirmed.

The Portuguese defender has signed a three-and-a-half year deal at the Madjeski.

Royals manager Jaap Stam said: “Tiago is the type of defender a lot of people like - his technical skill, passing ability, pace, quality and physique. We always want players with those attributes within our squad.

“In this league, with all the games we need to play, you never know what’s going to happen with injuries and suspensions – so it’s also important we have options and the chance to rotate.

“And looking to the future, you need to seize the opportunity when players like Tiago are available, so we’re very happy that he will be joining us at Reading.”

Sutton upset Wimbledon in FA Cup replay

Sutton wrote another chapter in their FA Cup history with a dramatic 3-1 win over 10-man AFC Wimbledon.

Two goals at the death from Maxime Biamou and Dan Fitchett secured the lowest-ranked team in the competition a money-spinning fourth-round tie at home to Premier League hopefuls Leeds.

Sutton, 15th in the National League, appeared to have missed their big chance in the first meeting between the sides 10 days ago when Wimbledon struggled to adapt to the hosts' 3G pitch but held out for a goalless draw.

The Dons - 50 places higher halfway up League One - were in the rare position of being favourites, but they still know how to do things the hard way.

They led through Tom Elliott's early header but had to play for 75 minutes with 10 men after Paul Robinson was sent off.

Roarie Deacon levelled for the underdogs and extra time was looming, but Biamou fired them ahead in the 90th minute and Fitchett finished off Wimbledon in injury time.
