Graeme Shinnie’s next club is reportedly set to be Derby – with the club expected to announce his signing soon.
The Aberdeen midfielder is out of contract at Pittodrie this summer, deciding to move on rather than sign an extension with the club.

But so far nothing had been agreed, with Shinnie believed to have other options.
Now, though, it looks like he’s signed on the dotted line for Derby – and reports today say it’s set to be announced by the English Championship outfit:
That’s a big setback for Aberdeen, but a big boost for Derby as they build on a great first season under Lampard.
They’ve already made it into the Premier League play-offs and now have a two-legged clash with Leeds United to get through for a place in the final at Wembley.
For Shinnie, he could be a Premier League player sooner than he expected.
