Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes is confident that Lewis Ferguson will commit his future to the club.

The Dons boss disclosed that talks are underway with the player’s representatives about keeping him at Pittodrie long-term.

McInnes did admit that the talks have only just begun though, and any deal is a long way off from being agreed.

“We have had initial talks with Lewis’ family, Lewis and his agent. I am sure we can find a way to do that” he told the Evening Express.

“But there is nothing to really report on that at the moment. All in due course.”

Ferguson has been one of the standout performers for Aberdeen this season.

He has made a big impression since joining the club from Hamilton in the summer. He has scored goals in some big games, against Burnley and Rangers for example.

Ferguson has six goals and six assists in 29 appearances so far this season, which is a more than decent return in his first season at Pittodrie.

It is important to remember that Ferguson’s contract runs until 2022, so there is no rush to get the new deal signed.

However, the Dons are being sensible when it comes to a new deal. They will know that clubs will be expressing interest in Ferguson, so improving his terms seems like the right thing to do.
