Miko Virtanen signs new Deal


Ahead of the pre-season campaign Miko Virtanen has signed a new two-year deal with the Pittodrie club.

The midfielder, who can also play at right back, is a Finland U19 Internationalist and was also training with the U21 national squad this summer.

The 20-year-old officially joined Everton’s Academy at the age of 16, signing scholarship forms in July 2015 and was part of the U18 squad at Goodison Park for two seasons before moving to Aberdeen in October 2017.

After impressing in the Development Squad over the past couple of seasons, Miko has been rewarded with a new contract. Last year he made 22 appearances for Paul Sheerin’s Reserve side, scoring five goals and also appeared on the first-team bench on a number of occasions.

Miko spoke to the Red Matchday Programme editor today after training and talked about his aims ahead of the new season as well as giving us an insight into Finnish football.
