Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has admitted that if possible, he would like to bring Tommie Hoban back to the club next season.

Hoban, who is out for the rest of the season with a knee injury, is a free agent in the summer. McInnes has revealed that he would like to bring the player back, but that he should concentrate on getting fit at his parent club Watford first.

“Hopefully Tommie gets himself back to full fitness, and we will see how things play out for him, really, at his own club” McInnes told the Evening Express.

“However, he is someone I would be keen to work with again” he concluded.

Hoban only managed to make nine appearances for the Dons before injury curtailed his season.

It will be interesting to see if McInnes decides to go back in for the player. It will all depend on how he recovers from his knee injury.

If he manages to show that he has recovered, then he would be a good addition to the ranks at Pittodrie. However, should the recovery process not go as planned, then the Dons are better off looking at other options.

It is a good sign for the player though, that McInnes has admitted that he would be ‘keen’ to work with the player once more.
