According to a report, Aberdeen are keen on signing Sunderland midfielder Dylan McGeouch. The Daily Record has revealed that the Dons are interested in signing the former Hibernian man, but are waiting to see if he has ‘a future’ at the League One club.

McGeouch joined Sunderland on a free transfer last summer, but has found it difficult to break into the Black Cats’ side.

He made 3o appearances last season, but lost his place in the squad towards the end of the season. He was not involved in Sunderland’s run to the play-off final.

Should McGeouch decide to leave Sunderland, Aberdeen will probably be one of a number of teams interested in the player.

Terrific performer for Hibs

It should be remembered that McGeouch was terrific in his time at Hibs. He was a key man for Neil Lennon’s side that finished fourth in the Premiership two seasons ago.

If he can replicate that form with Aberdeen, he would prove to be an excellent signing for the Dons. As McGeouch is still a Sunderland player at the moment, nothing can be done.

However, if there is an indication that the player would like to return to Scotland Aberdeen seem to be at the front of the queue. He would be a very good signing, and one Aberdeen fans would be pleased with.
