Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has revealed that he would like to bring Max Lowe back to the club next season.
Lowe is currently on loan at the Dons from Derby, and he is hopeful that the player will return to Scotland. However, the move depends on what Derby want to do.
“Eager to look at”
“If we get any encouragement from Derby that Max could be here next season then that is something we would be eager to look at” McInnes said, as reported by the Evening Express.
“Max is clearly enjoying it and I think would like to find a way to stay if he could. And we would like to have him. But we won’t be able to make that decision.”
Mainstay for the side
Lowe has been a mainstay for the Pittodrie side this season. He has made 46 appearances for the Dons this season.
He would be a big miss for the Dons if he departed the club to return to England. Aberdeen already need to replace the likes of Graeme Shinnie and probably Gary Mackay-Steven this summer.
It will be a blow if Lowe is another player that has to be replaced.
It is highly unlikely that Lowe will stay at Aberdeen in the long-term. He signed a three-year contract with Derby earlier this season.
However, it would be a benefit to the Dons if they managed to bring Lowe back for another season.
