Aberdeen centre-back Ash Taylor has disclosed that he has yet to discuss signing a new deal at Pittodrie.

The 30-year-old returned to Aberdeen at the start of last season, but with his deal set to expire at the end of this season he has not yet begun talks with Derek McInnes about extending his stay.

“Nothing at the moment”

“There’s nothing at the moment, and we’re just concentrating on the football. I wasn’t playing a few games at the start of the season but I’ve managed to get myself in the team again” he said (Aberdeen Evening Express).

“I’m fully concentrating on doing well for the football club and seeing where that takes us. I came back here because I enjoyed myself in my first spell. My first child was born here, and we’re fully integrated in Aberdeen. We know the city and I’ve enjoyed every minute of my second spell” he concluded.

A first-team regular this season

Taylor has been a regular for Aberdeen this season. He has made 15 appearances for the Dons. You have to imagine that Derek McInnes will be keen to get discussions with the player underway at some stage of the season. Perhaps it will be when things are less hectic in the game.

Taylor will no doubt be a key player for Aberdeen this season, in their bid to perhaps push for second in the Premiership and the upcoming Scottish Cup campaign.

It is a positive sign for the team that the player won’t let the contract situation affect his performances. With that being the case, he will likely be an Aberdeen regular for the rest of the season.
