Aberdeen defender Shaleum Logan says he could prolong his loan stay with the Dons thanks in part to being allowed to fly back regularly to see his two children in Manchester.

The 25-year-old former Manchester City player joined Derek McInnes' Aberdeen on loan from Brentford in January, but that deal expires at the end of the season.

And spending another year away from his Manchester-based family could yet sway his decision in favour of a return south.

"I have really enjoyed my time here so far," he said. "It's been one of the best spells of my career in football with winning the cup and playing at places like Celtic Park, Ibrox and even Hearts.

"It's surpassed my expectations and I have really enjoyed the city and the people up here.

"I have two kids that I have been living away from for the past three years. It's been a case of coming back weekly to see them. I just have to find the right balance for me.

"But Derek has given me time off to fly back down to see them. He knows how important that is to me and I really appreciated it."

He said he has definitely thought about staying at Pittodrie beyond the summer and will have talks with McInnes at the end of the season about his future.

Logan also insisted clinching a Europa League spot with a win when they host St Johnstone on Saturday is more prominent in his team's minds than gaining revenge for having their cup double hopes dashed by them a fortnight ago.

Logan gained a Scottish League Cup winners' medal after just seven games for Aberdeen when they beat Inverness Caledonian Thistle 4-2 on penalties in March, but the Dons were later beaten 2-1 by St Johnstone in the Scottish Cup semi-finals.

"We know three points will secure a European place and that is all we are focusing on," Logan said. "But I know St Johnstone are a good team with some decent individuals, so it will be a tough game."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
