Defender Shay Logan hopes to finish his career with Aberdeen after signing a new deal.
The 31-year-old has signed a one-year extension to remain with the Dons until at least the summer of 2021, with the option of an additional year.
Logan joined the Dons on loan from Brentford in 2014 before moving to the club on a permanent deal six months later. He has made 242 appearances for the Reds and scored 15 goals.
When asked if he hoped to finish his career at Aberdeen, Logan said: “At the stage I’m at now, most definitely.
“You could call me a veteran but I still feel young and fresh. I had a lay-off this season with injury so I’m sad to see the season finish after only being back three games. I can have a good summer now and come back stronger.
“It was an easy decision. I’m really happy to sign the extension. I can go away and enjoy the summer a bit more. This is a great club to be at and a great city. I have thoroughly enjoyed it since the day I got here.
“You have bad days but I have never fallen out of love with this city. I fell in love with it, especially after the win in the (2014 League Cup) final. I have loved it ever since and it has treated me well.
“I have a good rapport with the fans and I get on tremendously well with the manager and Tony Docherty. It is a great environment and a great club to be at.”
Logan is pleased that manager Derek McInnes will remain at the helm, having been touted as a potential successor to sacked Scotland manager Alex McLeish.
Steve Clarke, who guided Kilmarnock to a third-place finish in the Scottish Premiership, was named as the new national team boss on Monday and Logan is thrilled McInnes will still be at the club next term.
The defender added: “I’m sure he has wanted to be Scotland manager. It is a massive job for any Scottish manager. I think that day will come and he will decide when.
“I don’t think he would rush into anything like that. He isn’t finished with the job at Aberdeen. I’m more than happy he is still with us.
“His man-management with me, such as with my personal terms with my kids being down the road, has been second to none. I can’t thank him enough.”
