Aberdeen have had a pretty decent transfer window and the signing of Sunderland midfielder Dylan McGeouch would put the icing on the cake.
Recently they confirmed another summer signing, released Manchester United forward James Wilson.
Another one of Derek McInnes’ top targets is reportedly Sunderland midfielder Dylan McGeouch. According to the Evening Express, McInnes wants the ex-Hibs man signed up before the fifth of July, the deadline for Europe League registration, with an injury crisis upon the Dons midfield.
If Aberdeen get McGeouch, there’s no need for more business
It’s hard to remember the last time Aberdeen had such a good summer. The signings of Curtis Main and Ash Taylor are questionable, but outwith that, its been very promising.
Ryan Hedges is a bit of an unknown quantity. He’s very hot and cold but on his day he could be decent.
Greg Leigh is a decent replacement for recently departed left-back Max Lowe. Leigh is very similar to the Derby County full-back in that he’s very quick, with good attacking qualities to match up with his defensive duties.
Recently confirmed signing Wilson has been a long-term target of McInnes’ also. He showed towards the end of last season his true potential in a wide position. If the Dons boss can continue to get those type of performances out of Wilson, this is a brilliant piece of business.
Craig Bryson though is the best bit of business the Dons have done. He is a straight replacement for departed captain Graeme Shinnie and will bring class and experience to the Dons midfield. They’ll hope he’s fit for their European battle against their opponents from Finland.
McGeouch would be the icing on the cake. He’s an energetic midfielder, a quality Aberdeen have to find in their engine room. His addition would be brilliant, if they can keep the current Black Cats battler fit. A midfield three of him, Bryson and Lewis Ferguson would be the best in the league outwith Celtic and Rangers.
McInnes really wouldn’t have to add much more after this, if anything at all. He has built a very decent backbone for his Dons side.
Aberdeen look as strong as ever heading into the 2019/20 campaign.
