Aberdeen want to extend Derby County defender Max Lowe’s loan, according to the Press and Journal.

His current loan deal is due to expire in January but Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes is keen to extend it until the end of the season.

Lowe, who is 21 years-old, has impressed in the Scottish Premier League so far in this campaign and is enjoying getting regular first-team action. He has played 16 games in all competitions for the Dons, chipping with one goal.

Aberdeen manager McInnes, who has previously managed Bristol City in the Championship, has said: “His recall is the first week of January so I’ll probably talk to Frank (Lampard) and Derby next week and see where we’re at, but hopefully he can come to Dubai”.

He also added: “Considering he’s so young it’s clear that he’s making those improvements every week. Defensively he’s tightened up and his game is good. There is still aspects he can improve on but like a lot of good modern full-backs, his best form of defending is attacking. He forces his opponent back the way”.

Lowe joined Derby as a youngster and rose through the youth ranks at Pride Park. He made his senior debut for the Rams in August 2016 in a League Cup game against Carlisle United and has since made 14 appearances.

He spent last season on loan at League One side Shrewsbury Town and was part of Paul Hurst’s side who got to the Play-Off final. Being out on loan is good for Lowe as he is gaining more experience to help him progress.
