Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes feels that his club have plenty to offer players to entice them to move to Pittodrie. The Dons recently won a battle with Hibs to sign Funso Ojo, and McInnes believes that the Dons have some advantages when it comes to possible new recruits.
“We have the added weight with the training ground, stadium and being debt-free over the last couple of years. We have added positives when we make a pitch to a player” McInnes said, as reported by the Daily Record.
“The evidence is there”
“We feel the evidence is there over the last six years of players who have come to Aberdeen and bettered their careers” he concluded.
Aberdeen were certainly the closest challengers to Celtic for a number of seasons. That run came to an end last season when they finished fourth in the league table.
Aberdeen have challenged in recent seasons
But when it comes to getting to cup finals and semi-finals, Aberdeen have pushed Celtic close in recent seasons.
As McInnes also says, the new training ground and lack of debt are also factors that can help Aberdeen sign a player.
There also seems to be stability at the club. This was shown when McInnes agreed a new contract at the club recently. That could also entice players to join up.
It looks set to be an intriguing season at Pittodrie, the new signings can only add to that.
