Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes hopes that James Wilson’s career will settle down now that he has signed a permanent deal at Pittodrie.

The former Manchester United man spent last season on loan with the Dons. That was the latest in a number of loan deals that the player had.

However, now that he has found a permanent home with Aberdeen, McInnes believes the stability can pay dividends.

“A bit more settled”

“He was influential towards the end of last season, and we feel now he has found a home he will be a bit more settled as opposed to being a player who was put out here, there and everywhere” McInnes said, as reported by the Daily Record.

“It was the happiest dressing-room environment he has been in so 
that familiarity and coming back to me, the players and a city he enjoyed living and working in, can let him concentrate on his football.”

Perhaps being in an environment that suits him will allow Wilson to kick on. He could become the player that he has always looked like becoming.

He didn’t have it easy at Aberdeen last season. However, McInnes must think that Wilson is worth persevering with. Now that he is at Aberdeen permanently, Wilson will have the opportunity to repay the Dons manager for taking the chance on him.
