Aberdeen captain Joe Lewis is keen to stay at the club beyond the length of his current contract.

The 32-year-old’s existing deal expires in 2024, but Englishman Lewis is looking beyond that and can see himself still playing at the club beyond his mid-thirties.

Lewis has been with the Dons since joining from Cardiff City in 2016, and has racked up 184 appearances in total so far, including 42 in 2019/20 which is, of course, currently on hold.

Lewis is clearly extremely settled at the club and is a popular figure, and the former Peterborough United star seems keen to finish his career at Pittodrie.

He told The Evening Express: “I have another four years after this on my contract and hopefully I can have another few more years after that as well.

“This is a club that will be shooting for success as the chairman Dave Cormack wants to drive everyone forward.

“I realise how lucky I am to be at Aberdeen because of the way it is and how everyone is around the club. Everyone here is an Aberdeen fan. I consider myself now an Aberdeen fan.

Lewis’ comments are sure to go down well with the Aberdeen faithful, having proven himself to be a quality stopper over the years.

He is clearly extremely committed to the club and can set a great example to some of the younger players in the dressing room.

Perhaps his level would dip going into his mid-thirties at the club, but still having him around at that point surely wouldn’t do any harm given his professionalism.
