Frank Lampard Confirms Move for Aberdeen Captain Graeme Shinnie

Derby Country manager Frank Lampard has confirmed he’s keen on signing up Aberdeen captain Graeme Shinnie this summer.

The Dons skipper is out of contract at the end of the current campaign and was spotted taking a tour of Derby’s Pride Park last Thursday afternoon.

Shinnie has also been linked with a move to Rangers but, earlier today, Lampard confirmed his side’s interest is genuine.

Speaking via the Derby Telegraph, the ex-Chelsea midfielder confirmed Shinnie’s tour and explained: “I actually get on very well with the Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes so he is very aware of it.

“Graeme Shinnie has options, and I think we are an option hence why he was here.

“It is not done yet, so we have to wait and see what happens but he is a player we are interested in, yes.”

Shinnie missed Aberdeen’s Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Celtic at Hampden yesterday through suspension, and was spotted watching on from the stands.

But where do you think the 27-year-old would be best suited playing his football next season? Should he stay in Scotland with one half of the Old Firm, or should he try his luck in the English Championship?

What do you think?
