The left-back enjoyed a fruitful spell at Pittodrie last season on loan from Pride Park. He was one of the Dons’ better players last year in what was all in all an average campaign.
He’ll be a big miss if he doesn’t return. That’s why Derek McInnes should enquire about the full-back once more.
Lowe loan spell will benefit him long-term
McInnes previously told the Evening Express that Lowe was ‘one of the options’ he was looking at this transfer window. That should give Dons fans the encouragement there’s at least interest in him.
It’s not hard to see why. The left-back is fairly quick, equally comfortable bursting down the left flank as he is covering the defensive line. He is the perfect modern full-back.
If Aberdeen get the opportunity they have to move for him. Even if it’s just a loan deal, there aren’t going to be many better players available to Aberdeen than Lowe.
The Englishman is a terrific young player. His stock is continuing to rise and if he enjoyed another spell at Pittodrie, you’d like to think he could break into the first-team at Derby. That might even be an option this season.
If he wants guaranteed football though, the Rams full-back should get himself back on loan to the Granite City. It will benefit him long-term to play football every week at a young age.
Moving to the Dons again would aid Lowe’s development. If the opportunity arises, McInnes has to follow up on it.
