Aberdeen this evening completed the signing of Reading central defender Michael Hector on a half season loan. The 21 year old, who is eligible to play for either England or Jamaica, joined the Championship side in 2009, spending subsequent loan periods at Barnet, where he was named Young Player of the Season for 2011-12, Shewsbury, Aldershot and Cheltenham Town.

Manager Derek McInnes commented. "With the current defensive injury situation, I'm delighted to have been able to bring in Michael, who is a big strong lad who comes with a good pedigree. Michael's arrival concludes things as far as players coming in is concerned while we are looking at loan deals going the other way for one or two of our younger lads."

Hector goes straight into the squad for this evening's Pittodrie friendly with FC Twente.
