Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has admitted that he’s still looking to bring in “one or two” new faces before the deadline for the first round of Europa League qualifying – and confirmed he is “keen” to bolster his midfield.
The Dons boss has already had a busy summer with six signings so far but McInnes wants to be “fully prepared” for when they face Finnish side RoPS on July 11th.
McInnes admits the obvious area that needed to be strengthened was at left-back but is looking at a number of areas.
“We were keen to try to get one or two more in before the European deadline to make sure we are fully prepared,” McInnes told the Evening Express.
“The obvious one was left-back but we are looking at two or three different positions.
“We are also keen to bring in another midfielder.”
McInnes has signed Craig Bryson, Curtis Main, Ash Taylor, Ryan Hedges, Jon Gallagher and Greg Leigh already this summer as he reshapes his side after a disappointing season.
After successive second-place finishes in the league, the Dons slipped to fourth and will be desperate to improve on that in the new campaign.
McInnes’ signings should help Aberdeen make up the ground they lost last season but there’s still a clear need for a couple of players to come straight into the starting XI.
