Tommie rejoins Dons


The Club can this evening confirm defender Tommie Hoban has signed a short-term deal until January.

The 26-year-old joined the Dons on a season long loan from Watford in July 2018 before cruelly suffering an injury at the start of 2019 which saw him miss the remainder of the season.

With an injury ruling Michael Devlin out for around two months, Manager Derek McInnes is pleased to have bolstered his defensive options.

“In light of the injury to Mikey an opportunity has arisen for Tommie to be part of the squad on a short-term deal until January.

“I enjoyed working with Tommie prior to the injury he sustained in an Aberdeen shirt and following his rehab with us we’ve taken the option for him to join us whilst we are a defender short.

“I’m delighted to get a player of his quality and I regard him very highly, not only as a player, but also as a person. We are mindful he is a bit short of fitness, but he has put in a lot of hard work and I am assured we can get him up to speed quickly.”

Tommie has been allocated shirt number 3 and will go into the squad for the Scottish Premiership opener against Rangers tomorrow.
