Aberdeen have been linked with a move for their former centre-back Ash Taylor.

The Evening Express is reporting that the Dons are considering bringing the defender back to Pittodrie, two years after he left for Northampton Town.

The report goes on to reveal that Taylor has recently been transfer listed by his club, which has put him back on the club’s radar.

A more than decent player

Taylor was a more than decent player for the Dons in his time at the club. He played a key role in the 2016-17 season, where the Dons finished runners-up in three competitions.

He could also form a partnership with Scott McKenna. That has the makings of a solid centre-back pairing.

Can the club afford the player?

The big question to take into consideration is: would be could the Dons afford the player? You would have to imagine that the answer is ‘yes’.

With the likes of Graeme Shinnie and potentially Gary Mackay-Steven leaving, the Dons should have money to spend.

If Derek McInnes wants to bring Taylor back to the club, the board should make sure that the move goes through. Then it will be up to the player, if he wants to make the move back to Aberdeen.

Perhaps it is telling that in a summer where he is set to lose some important players, Derek McInnes is reportedly thinking of bringing an important player back to the club.

Only time will tell if the move takes place.
