He’s been one of Derek McInnes’ long-term Aberdeen targets- but the Dons boss has finally delivered Dylan McGeouch to fans following the midfielder’s move from Sunderland.
After finding his minutes on the park limited this season at the Stadium of Light, McGeouch has moved to Pittodrie. He has signed a deal until the summer of 2022.
It’s a big move from the Dons and makes their already strong midfield stronger. When fit, they now have Lewis Ferguson, Craig Bryson, Funso Ojo, Dean Campbell, Jon Gallagher and now McGeouch as natural central options.
McGeouch’s had a frustrating time down south. He’s never really found consistency under two bosses at Sunderland. He did feature under Jack Ross but he was clearly not a favourite of new man Phil Parkinson.
The midfielder is no stranger to the SPFL. Aberdeen will be his third Premiership club, following a start at Celtic and a memorable spell with Hibs, in which he helped them win the Scottish Cup.
It’s a good player for Aberdeen to have and some fans seem pleased with McGeouch opting for Pittodrie over Sunderland.
Big statement from the club!! Well done @AberdeenFC and HUGE welcome FINALLY to Dylan McGeouch!!!

IF Mcgeouch stays fit he could be the one of the best midfielders in the league

McGeouch confirmed then. I’ll take Jimmy Dunne in on loan and Stephen O’Donnell and Matty Kennedy in on pre-contracts. That would be a fantastic window all in all.

Mcgeouch signed! If we get the player that was at hibs, that would be decent! Wonder if his time at Sunderland has effected him! But feel it’s a positive enough signing

McGeouch hopefully stay fit – always was impressive a few years ago!
I personally always felt he was better than McGinn in that Hibs team a couple of seasons back!
