Teddy Jenks is looking forward to ‘a change of scenery’ after swapping Premier League Brighton and Hove Albion for cinch Premiership club Aberdeen.

The Pittodrie outfit- managed by Stephen Glass – have snapped up the highly-rated midfielder from Brighton on a season-long loan. Jenks will add to Aberdeen’s midfield options ahead of their opening UEFA Europa Conference League Second Round qualifier against Swedes BK Häcken next month.

Jenks said (Red TV): “The move has been on the cards for a while. There were a few other clubs that were interested but I thought more and more about it and Aberdeen is a brilliant club with a brilliant history. It is the best option for me. I play in midfield; I like to attack a bit more than defending but I can do both.

“I have spoken to the manager. Scott Brown has joined as well so there are already some very good midfielders at the club so I will have to fight for my place. The way the manager wants to play football will suit my game. At Brighton we like to keep possession so playing here will suit my game perfectly.

“I have been at Brighton for nearly 10 years now, I started there when I was 10 years old. This is different for me, a change of scenery. Aberdeen is a long way from Brighton!”
