Aberdeen were certainly very busy on transfer deadline day. Ross McCrorie completed his permanent move to the club, with Callum Hendry and Fraser Hornby both joining on loan.

Scott Wright left to join Rangers, Curtis Main also departed the club, and Bruce Anderson moved to Hamilton on loan. However, perhaps one of the most interesting moves that the club made was the decision to sign Florian Kamberi.

Familiar to Scottish football fans

The 25-year-old joins the Dons from St Gallen on loan until the end of the season. Kamberi is of course a player familiar to Scottish football fans.

He has had spells at both Hibernian and Rangers. His time at Hibernian was a success, as the player scored 30 goals in 84 games at Easter Road.

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes feels that the player has plenty to offer the club.

“Shown his quality”

“I’m pleased again to further enhance our attacking options. Florian has shown his quality in our league over a period of time and again, once we knew there was an opportunity to get him, we pursued it quite vigorously” he said.

“He seems enthusiastic to be here. He has got undoubted quality, experience in this league, and we’re hopeful that will help him settle quicker. I’m positive he can have an impact between now and the end of the season” the Dons boss concluded.

The additions of Kamberi, Hendry and Hornby give Aberdeen plenty of attacking options between now and the end of the season. The trio could be useful in helping some recent Aberdeen draws into victories.
