Aberdeen have revealed some good news on the transfer front. The club have announced on their official Twitter account that veteran defender Andrew Considine has signed a new two-year deal with the club, with an option of a third year.

The news will come as a relief to all at Pittodrie. There are a number of players out of contract at the end of the season. The likes of Graeme Shinnie and Gary Mackay-Steven could leave the club on a free transfer at the end of the end.

Committed future to club

That isn’t the case with Considine though, who has committed his future to Aberdeen.

Considine has been a first-team regular for the Dons this season, making 41 appearances and scoring four goals.

His centre-back partnership with Scott McKenna has been one of the strongest areas of the Dons side this season. Derek McInnes will be hoping that the pair will remain in place at the beginning of next season.

It is no surprise really that Considine has decided to sign a new deal with the Dons. He has been at the club for 15 years, and looks set to retire as an Aberdeen player.

He will be hoping that the next few years bring some silverware to Pittodrie, should that happen, Considine will be an integral part of the side.
