ABERDEEN midfielder Lewis Ferguson has agreed a two-year contract extension at the Pittodrie outfit.

The new deal will see him stay at the Dons until at least the summer of 2024.

Ferguson signed from Hamilton Accies on a pre-contract before the end of the 2017/18 season and made his debut against Burnley in a Europa League qualifier in July. He scored his side’s only goal in the 3-1 loss at Turf Moor.
The 19-year-old, who netted the winner against Rangers to book a place in the Betfred League Cup Final where they lost 1-0 to Celtic in December, said: “It was an easy decision.

“As everyone can see, I am loving life up in Aberdeen and enjoying every bit of it.

“It is a long time, the length of the contract. And I have a lot to thank the manager and the club for. I have to thank them for repaying me with a new contact and I am just delighted.

“It shows that manager really trusts me and wants me here for the next few years.”

Ferguson has become a regular in Derek McInnes’ side, making 30 appearances while scoring seven goals.

He was also involved in a moment of controversy when he was challenged by Ibrox keeper Allan McGregor in the 4-2 loss at Pittodrie. The Scotland international escaped punishment on the night, but copped a retrospective ban from the SFA.
