Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes is eager to see striker Florian Kamberi make his debut for the Pittodrie club. Despite signing for the Dons on loan from St Gallen in the January window, the former Hibernian striker had to wait for a work permit.

However, all being well he should be in the Aberdeen squad for the weekend’s game against St Mirren. McInnes feels that the 25-year-old will help to improve the players that are currently at the club.

“Florian is maybe not going to be prolific in terms of scoring, but he will chip in with goals” he said (Daily Record).

“Has the ability”

“He makes other players better and links the play well. He has the ability to stretch teams and Florian can absolutely play one or two positions for us on that front end” McInnes mused.

With Aberdeen badly in need of wins after some poor results it would not be a surprise to see the striker going straight into the Dons first-team against St Mirren.

Could immediately make first-team

McInnes has indicated that he is considering starting Kamberi for Aberdeen as soon as he arrives in Scotland.

“He has know-how of the Premiership and a pedigree. Not having him available for Hibs and Livingston was a blow. However, the adjustment and settling into the Scottish league will be fine for Florian” McInnes stated.

Aberdeen go into the game against St Mirren on the back of a run which has seen them fall behind Hibernian in the battle for third place in the Premiership.

Having Kamberi in the side could be a real help when it comes to getting back to winning ways.
