Aberdeen FC can this evening confirm goalkeeper Nicky Weaver has joined the Club on a six month deal.

The 34 year old former England under-21 international, who has previously featured for Manchester City, Charlton Athletic, Dundee United and Burnley, became a free agent in the summer after being released by Sheffield Wednesday.

Manager Derek McInnes was delighted to secure the services of Nicky. "I'm delighted to get Nicky on board.

"To get such an experienced and talented goalkeeper is important and to get him during the pre-season stage is great for him in terms of being able to integrate with the boys.

"We had a few avenues and other options but we feel with the signing of Nicky we've recruited well and Nicky's eagerness and willingness to come here was pivotal."

Nicky has joined up with the squad in Dublin as they kick off their pre-season tour of Ireland with matches against UCD, Malahide and Shelbourne to look forward to. RedTV will speak to the keeper tomorrow morning.
