Nicky Devlin has today officially become an Aberdeen FC player and will join the Club on a two-year deal.

The 29-year-old defender is the Dons first summer signing, with the Livingston captain arriving at Pittodrie having made close to 150 appearances for The Lions.

The Scottish right-back had a number of other offers so manager Barry Robson was delighted with his first capture of the summer as he reshapes his squad ahead of the 2023/24 campaign.

“Nicky is a proven leader and is exactly the type of character I want within my squad here,” said Aberdeen boss Barry Robson.

“He is an experienced professional who has been captain at two previous Clubs, he knows the league well and is equipped for the demands we are going to face next season.”

Nicky is eagerly anticipating the new challenge that awaits him at Pittodrie next season.

He said: “It’s great to be an Aberdeen player and I am really looking forward to the season ahead.

“Aberdeen really impressed me when the conversations first started about a potential move. The way the manager wants to take the Club forward and the personal touches from all the staff contributed to my decision. Aberdeen was definitely the best fit for me.

“The opportunity to play in Europe was clearly an added attraction.

“I’ve had to work hard in my career to get where I am and so I want to do my very best at Aberdeen and grasp the fantastic opportunity I’ve been given.”
