It was reported the Pittodrie side had lost the battle with Wigan poised to secure his signature, but McInnes has now put those rumours to bed.

He said: “We’re well used to players being linked with clubs during the window but there’s nothing in the Shinnie going to Wigan story.

“There’s been no offers for any of our players other than New York informing us they wanted to speak to Gary (Mackay-Steven) which they are entitled to do.

“At the minute my concentration is on getting players into the club.”
