Midfielder Graeme Shinnie joined Derby County from Scottish Premier League side Aberdeen on a free transfer in the summer of 2019.
The Rams beat off competition from a host of clubs for his signature as he signed a three-year deal.
Born in Aberdeen, Shinnie’s professional career began at Inverness Caledonian Thistle and he made his first-team debut at the age of just 17.
He spent time on loan at Highland League side Forres Mechanics in his first season as a professional before becoming a first-team regular at the Highland outfit from the start of the 2010/11 season.
During six seasons with Inverness, Shinnie made 187 appearances, scoring eight times, and was primarily used as a left-back.
His time at Inverness ended on a high note in May 2015 as he lifted the Scottish Cup following a 2-1 victory over Falkirk at Hampden Park.
Shinnie joined Aberdeen as a free agent when his Inverness contract expired in the summer of 2015.
He has made 181 appearances over the course of the last four campaigns, netting 11 goals, and has worn the captain’s armband since 2017.
Shinnie has also gained European experience with Aberdeen in recent seasons in the Europa League qualifiers, as well as playing in two Scottish League Cup Finals and one Scottish Cup Final.
On the international stage, Shinnie has six full international caps to his name for Scotland.
A former Scotland Under-21 international, he made his international bow in May 2018 against Peru and has since made a further five appearances for his country.
