Derek McInnes has dropped a hint about Aberdeen’s upcoming business in the summer transfer window that is sure to interest fans.

He has disclosed that the Pittodrie side are set to look abroad for potential signings.

“We will be looking overseas as well” he told the Evening Express.

“We have been looking far afield, and we now have a better handle on certain markets at the minute. We just have to bring in good players because that is what we all want to work with.”

That is a bit of a change in policy from McInnes. He has mostly signed players from the United Kingdom in his time at Pittodrie.

A number of signings needed

However, as he says, it all about bringing in good players, no matter where they come from. Aberdeen may well be in need of a number of signings this close season.

There has to be doubts over the future of Graeme Shinnie, Gary Mackay-Steven and Greg Stewart. All three are out of contract at the end of the season, and may well depart the club.

Should that be the case, the Dons will need to bring in a raft of new signings.

Therefore, the numbers will need to be made up. New signings will need to be brought in. And as McInnes has suggested, the signings may well be playing abroad at the moment.
