Derek McInnes believes Aberdeen midfielder Lewis Ferguson is ‘keen to try something new’ amid interest from Watford – but his commitment isn’t in question.

Watford had a bid for the Aberdeen midfielder rejected this summer, Ferguson handing in a transfer request off the back of it. Aberdeen rejected the request but his form has not dipped, scoring a double in Thursday’s fantastic 5-1 Europa Conference League second qualifying round first leg victory against BK Häcken.

Ferguson’s former manager McInnes reckons the likes of Watford have Ferguson wanting something new, but in the meantime, he’ll continue to thrive (DM): “It was good to see such a spread of goals but I thought Lewis Ferguson was pivotal, man of the match.

“Fergie has always been a very good finisher and having Scott Brown tucked in behind will only allow him to go and cause even more damage.

 

“He is destined to play at a higher level because he can do everything. It’s clear that Lewis is still keen to try something new but no one watching him on Thursday could question his commitment.”
