ABERDEEN striker Sam Cosgrove has knocked back a £2.5million move to French team Guingamp, according to Sky Sports News.

Reports insist the Pittodrie club received “a significant offer” for the frontman who was the team’s top scorer with 23 goals last season.

Cosgrove, 23, opted against the move due to the short time-frame required for it to proceed. Plus the English-born hitman, a bargain £100,000 from Carlisle in 2018, believes he has more to offer at Pittodrie.

The Dons are battling the financial hit created by the coronavirus pandemic, with players and staff undergoing a process of wage cuts.

Chairman Dave Cormack recently revealed the club is facing up to a potential £10million shortfall , but confirmed that half of that has already been offset.

Derek McInnes’ side kick off the new Premiership campaign against Rangers at Pittodrie on August 1.
