Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has provided contract updates on two of his players. The Dons manager has disclosed that the club is in talks with Andy Considine and Scott Wright about keeping the duo at Pittodrie.

The pair’s contracts expire at the end of the season, but McInnes is hopeful that the players will still be at the club next season.

Won’t want summer’s plans distracted by contract talks

Dealing with Considine first, the player has a lot to play for, as he aims to keep his place in the Scotland squad for next summer’s European Championships. He won’t want to let contract talks get in the way of that you would imagine, and would want the issue sorted out soon.

McInnes hopes that the Dons defender will agree his new deal by the start of 2021, but as yet nothing has been signed by the player.


“Andy we are getting a bit closer to I think, but we have nothing agreed yet. I don’t anticipate it being an issue” McInnes said (Daily Record).

“Pretty much as it was”

“It is pretty much as it was the contract and it is just a case of Andy discussing it with his family and working out what he wants to do. We are hoping that by the turn of the year Andy will have that signed” he concluded.

McInnes also provided a brief update on Wright’s future at Aberdeen, and he disclosed that as far as he is aware talks are still going on between the player’s agent and the club.

“Scott and his agent are talking to the club. No-one has told me they have reached an agreement yet so hopefully that can be the case.”
