Watford defender Tommie Hoban has admitted that he would consider a return to Aberdeen in the summer when his Vicarage Road contract ends – and insisted that he loved his time at Pittodrie despite picking up a career-threatening injury.
Hoban suffered a torn cruciate ligament which ended his Dons loan early and forced him to return south for treatment.
After Derek McInnes admitted that he’d like to bring Hoban back, the defender said it was “really kind” of McInnes and that he would consider a return to the Granite City.
“It was really kind of him. I loved my time at Aberdeen,” Hoban told the Daily Record.
The boys are great, the staff are brilliant and I enjoyed living up there with the family although it was shorter than we’d hoped.
“I would consider going back if it was an option.”
Hoban only managed nine games for the Dons before getting hurt and faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines before he is fit to return.
With his Watford future up in the air, a deal for Hoban could be a good move for the Dons – if he can prove his fitness.
While it is likely to be a while before Hoban can play again, there’s a good player there and he would definitely strengthen Aberdeen’s defence.
