Aberdeen goalkeeper Joe Lewis has agreed a new contract with Scottish Premier League (SPL) side Aberdeen.

The 31-year-old player, who is the Dons' first-choice shot-stopper, has committed himself to the club until 2024.

Lewis is yet to miss a match this season having played 47 times under the Dons coach Derek McInnes and he has since signed a five-year deal with the club.
“I’m very pleased. I don’t think discussions took that long and as far as football contracts go – sometimes they can drag on," Lewis said.

"I’m very happy at the football club, my family is settled and as soon as the club approached myself and my agent to try get something sorted we were all keen to get it done and as soon as possible.

“I’m delighted to have it done. I think there’s so much to look forward to at the club and I feel like it’s going in the right direction. We’ve got the training ground coming next season and the stadium hopefully not too far after that," he added.

“It’s something I’d love to be involved in and playing in the new stadium and I think it’s something that will keep and attract players as well as help and encourage the young lads through.

“There wasn’t too much thought to go into it. I’m very happy and love playing here and five more years of it was very appealing to me."
