Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has admitted that Sam Cosgrove’s goalscoring form has alerted the player to teams in England.

The Dons striker has scored 17 goals this season, and McInnes believes clubs in England have taken notice of his form.

“I know a lot of clubs down south are aware Sam is doing well. You would do at the rate he is scoring goals” he told the Scottish Sun.

“I am sure there will be a lot of teams having a look but for us there were no offers and no concrete talks in January.”

The player’s contract runs until 2022. So if he does leave the Dons in the summer at least Aberdeen will get good money for him.

The striker will be a key man for the Dons going forward for the rest of the season. Particularly in their battle to qualify for Europe.

With a Scottish Cup quarter-final against Rangers or Kilmarnock on the horizon, Cosgrove could well be the difference maker between the Dons reaching the semi-final or crashing out of the tournament.

When you consider that the player score only one goal last season after signing from Carlisle United, the turnaround in his fortunes has been astonishing.

Credit for that must be given to the player himself, and to the coaching staff at Aberdeen. Last season he didn’t look anything like a 20 goal a season striker, but he has shown he knows where the back of the net is this season.
