Soon to depart Aberdeen skipper Graeme Shinnie has stated that he has not ruled out a return to the club in the future.

Shinnie will be a Derby County player next season, but he has disclosed that a return to Pittodrie in the future isn’t out of the possibility.

“I’ll never say never regarding the future because I would love to come back and play at the club again” he revealed, as reported by the Evening Express.

“Hopefully the door is always open”

“It’s with a heavy heart that I leave – but hopefully the door is always open if I want to come back.”

Shinnie has signed a three-year deal with Derby, so any return to Aberdeen would not be for a while yet.

However, should he still capable of playing to a high standard, Shinnie could be worth bringing back to the club.

When it comes the here and now, Shinnie will be a huge miss for Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes.

Driving force for Aberdeen

Now the player could be playing in the Premier League next season, as Derby are set to play Aston Villa in the play-off final next week.

The chances of him ever returning to the Dons does seem a bit unlikely. But at least he has kept the door open for a return.
