Luton Town’s rumoured interest in Aberdeen midfielder Graeme Shinnie has been confirmed by manager Mick Harford according to reports by Luton Today.
The 27-year-old Scotland international is out of contract at Pittodrie at the end of the season and he may opt to leave Aberdeen after three-and-a-half years with The Dons.
A number of clubs are thought to be ready to move for Shinnie with Sky Bet League One outfit Luton Town said to be one of the front-runners for the player. The Hatters signed Shinnie’s brother, Andrew, on a two-year deal last summer. The player, who is also a midfielder, has already racked up 40 appearances for the Bedfordshire side this term in which he has scored five goals. The prospect of a link-up with his brother at Kenilworth Road could prove to be a factor in Shinnie’s decision on his future beyond the summer.
Shinnie joined Aberdeen from Inverness Caledonian Thistle in January 2015. The player was thought to have turned down a move to the Sky Bet Championship in favour of remaining north of the border at that time but the midfielder could now test himself at that level with admirers Luton Town cruising to promotion back to the second tier after a 12-year absence.
As well as the interest in Shinnie from Luton Town, it is believed that Rangers boss Steven Gerrard is keen to sign the player, although his preferred option could be to move to England unless he signs a new deal with Aberdeen.
