Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has provided an update on the Dons future of striker Sam Cosgrove as the January transfer window gets ready to slam shut.
The player was recently the subject of some speculation regarding his future. It was reported that Aberdeen had priced Sheffield Wednesday out of any move for the 24-year-old.
Manager addressed the player’s future
As the speculation will no doubt continue before the window closes on the 31st of January, McInnes has addressed the player’s future. He has disclosed that the club has yet to receive any firm offers for the striker.
“There have been a few conversations had with a few clubs about Sam Cosgrove but there has been no concrete offer for him or any of our players. While they are under contract or not it is up to the club decide wherever we sell or not” he said (official Aberdeen website).
McInnes went on to state that he expects moves to be made in the last few days of the January window. That is what has happened previously, and he expects no different this time.
“A very uncertain month”
“January can be a very uncertain month anyway. For all managers you are trying to manage that situation. There are clubs who see this as their last chance to strengthen their squad, wherever it is clubs at the bottom or top of the table.
“You don’t see too much happening in the first few weeks of January. But things do start to heat up over the last few days, and I am sure that will be no different this time around” he concluded.
Cosgrove and Aberdeen are in action tonight when they take on St Johnstone. Only time will tell if that is the striker’s last Dons appearance.
