DYLAN MCGEOUGH looks like he’s set to stay at Sunderland for at least another season after reports in Scotland said the former Celtic and Hibs player could be on his way to Aberdeen.
The Record reports McInnes is a huge admirer of the Sunderland player who didn’t get as much game time as he wanted last term with Jack Ross.
With speculation pointing to an Aberdeen move, the Sunderland boss has commented the player wants to stay at the stadium of light and fight for his place in the side.
“Dylan had a frustrating season last year in terms of coming to the club and wanting to be a success and play more regularly.
“I didn’t want to lose him, I feel he has still got something to offer here, but of course that has to work on both sides. Dylan had the option to extend his contract and it was entirely at his discretion, so I was pleased he wanted to stay and try to prove he can be a success here
“You never how things are going to turn out but he certainly has the ability to be a success here, and we will do everything we can to get the best out of him.”
Aberdeen will now have to look elsewhere for alternatives.
McGeough once scored Celtic’s goal of the season when the player ran nearly the length of the pitch to score a cracking goal.
At Hibernian, he played under current Celtic boss Neil Lennon.
With the Black Cats missing out on promotion after a horrid end to what was mostly a good season. The player may feel he has unfinished business with the English club.
