Former Carlisle United striker Sam Cosgrove’s future is back under the microscope amid fresh interest in the Aberdeen star.

Reports north of the border say Sheffield Wednesday have enquired about the 24-year-old.

The Blues, who sold Cosgrove to the Pittodrie club in January 2018, will be keeping tabs on the situation

Chairman Andrew Jenkins last year confirmed Carlisle retain a “financial interest” in the ex-Wigan man, which could benefit the Blues in the form of a sell-on clause.

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes says the Pittodrie club have fielded calls but played down suggestions of an imminent departure from his squad.

He said: “I think there has been conversations had with one or two clubs – one club in particular – but there’s been no concrete offers in for any of our players,” he said.

Cosgrove, who scored 23 goals last season, has netted three times this campagn after returning from a knee cartilage injury.

Last summer Aberdeen accepted a £2.7 million bid from French outfit Guingamp, but the striker turned down the move.

Sheffield Wednesday are said to have been priced out of a move this time.

The big frontman joined United in the summer of 2017 after a trial under former boss Keith Curle. He scored once for the Blues after breaking into the side mid-season, and was quickly snapped up by Aberdeen.
