The saga has an official end. Aberdeen have announced the highly anticipated signing of Fusno Ojo from Scunthorpe United. He joins on a three-year deal

According to the BBC, Ojo picked Pittodrie over Premiership rivals Hibs. Hibees boss Paul Heckingbottom spoke recently about how Hibs had a bid accepted for him in May before circumstances changed, leading to his Granite City switch.

Some Aberdeen fans are just as delighted at getting one up over Hibs as they are about signing the Belgian.

Ojo is a decent Aberdeen signing

This is a massive plus for Aberdeen. He’d have been a great signing for either Aberdeen or Hibs, so Derek McInnes will be buzzing to get him.

For Dons fans, it’s brilliant. The circumstances in which this has played out makes Ojo’s Pittodrie arrival feel like a victory over Hibs. Some fans on social media are taking great pleasure in revelling in that fact.

Most importantly though, they are getting a good midfielder. Sure he has some weaknesses. If things aren’t going well he sometimes doesn’t look as interested. That showed at Scunthorpe last year.

He was brilliant during 2017/18 for them, but when they were plunged into a relegation battle, Ojo was caught hiding a bit.

When on form though, he’s brilliant. Ojo is a good midfield anchor who’ll put the hard yards in with his work in front of the back four. He can tidy up midfield problems with ease, and has a decent passing range to boot to.

For many different reasons, this is a positive outcome for the Dons
