Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has insisted that the Dons won’t let lethal frontman Sam Cosgrove go for a measly fee.

With a brilliant 15 goals to his name already this term, the striker will naturally pick up interest as he continues to perform at a high rate.

Much like their stance with Scott McKenna though, the Dons will demand big money for their main man.

He told the Sunday Post (sport, page 3, 27/10/19): “It’s got to be the right deal for Scott, and it’s got to be the right deal for us as we only get one shot at selling him.


“The deals that were put to us in the summer were 100% not right for us. If an offer comes for Cosgrove in January, it’s up to the club to look at it, the same as with any offer.

“But, for me, the improvement is going to continue for Sam, and the longer that we have him in an Aberdeen shirt, the better it’s going to be for us.”

Aberdeen will demand seven figures for Cosgrove

During the summer, it was reported that the Dons value their centre-back McKenna at £7 million (The Times). It’s likely that similar figures will be required to prise Cosgrove away.

Aberdeen seem quite happy to play the long game with their prize assets and that’s commendable. Most Premiership clubs would have their heads turned by seven figure bids, but Aberdeen seem adamant to hold firm.

They could really be doing with keeping Cosgrove anyway. In the 11 games he’s scored in this season, the Red Army have yet to suffer defeat. It’s a stat that highlights how reliant they are on him.

It doesn’t appear as if they’ll be willing to let him go for pennies which will be good news for Aberdeen supporters.
