Aberdeen skipper Graeme Shinnie has reportedly been spotted at Derby County’s Pride Park after talks over a summer move to join Frank Lampard’s side.
According to the Derby Telegraph, Shinnie has been holding talks with the Rams while a photo on social media seemingly shows the Scotland international inside the stadium.

With his Aberdeen contract up in the summer, Shinnie is free to talk to any club about a summer transfer.
The Aberdeen captain is suspended for this weekend’s Scottish Cup semi-final with Celtic and will be stuck on the sidelines as they aim to reach a final against Hearts or Inverness Caley Thistle on May 25th.
Shinnie has played 180 games for Aberdeen since joining the Dons from Inverness, making 48 appearances this season as he’s helped McInnes side to fourth place in the league.
The versatile 27-year-old has picked up five Scotland caps so far and a move to the Championship would surely help him stake a claim for a regular place in the national squad.
Working under an iconic midfielder like Lampard is also something that can really help improve his game.
