Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass believes Wolves loanee Austin Samuels ‘knows what it is all about’ at the Pittodrie club after signing a season-long loan deal.
The Scottish Premiership side can make the 20-year-old’s stay in the Granite City permanent following his loan conclusion in May next year. Samuels is a quick forward who has progressed through the academy at English Premier League club Wolves but first-team opportunities have been limited.
Aberdeen face Qarabag in the return leg of their Europa Conference League play-off match tonight. Glass said: “We are delighted to add Austin to the group. He offers great pace, energy and quality in the forward areas and we’re looking forward to seeing him impact the group as soon as possible.
“He has a great pedigree being a youth international and coming from a hugely respected club such as Wolves and it’s important to us we have the option to buy at the end as we continue to build the squad.
“I hope Austin settles in quickly and he enjoys his time up here. He is different to the other forward players we have got. We are excited to have him here. He will be a good addition to the group.
“He is excited to play for the club, he knows what it is all about up here and the fact that he can be at the game on Thursday is brilliant because he can feel what it is all about ahead of Sunday. You will see a guy who is hungry to play for the club.”
