Aberdeen sign NAC Breda defender on season-long loan

Today, 05:29 PM

Aberdeen have signed NAC Breda left back Greg Leigh on a season-long loan.

The 24-year-old left back was a youth player at Manchester City before having spells at Bradford City and Bury.

Leigh moved to Eredivisie side NAC Breda last year, making 16 appearances and scoring one goal in his first season in Dutch football.

Dons manager Derek McInnes said he was delighted to sign the former England under-19 international.

He said: “We’ve been aware of Greg for a while and in January, when it looked as though Max was staying at Derby, he was someone we were quite far down the road with.

“He’s versatile, gives us a bit of athleticism, has decent experience for someone with his best years ahead of him and he sees Aberdeen as the right move at this stage.

“There were a number of clubs in England keen to take Greg but I felt he bought into what we’re trying to do early on in our conversations.”

Aberdeen sign former Dundee goalkeeper Sam Jackson

Today, 02:23 PM

Aberdeen have signed goalkeeper Sam Jackson on a one-year deal.

The 19-year-old, who is from London and previously played for Millwall, was released by Dundee at the end of last season.

He said: “I felt I did quite well at Dundee, they were happy with my progress and I was hopeful of getting another contract, but as everyone knows they have been relegated and that has led to them having to adjust their finances and get rid of a lot of the reserve team.

“So it was not just me which was a shame.

“I did like it there, but everything has worked out of me and now I am at Aberdeen.

“It was a tough year. There is no point in denying that. It was very frustrating to see. I was involved at times with the first team, I went to Portugal when I first joined, and I was also doing the warm up every week with the first team keepers and then playing for the reserves midweek.

“Being in and around the first team, I was friendly with all the players and they were a good bunch, every single one of them, so the relegation hits you hard.

“The boys who were there have been through a lot, losing ten games in a row, it is not pleasant for any player.”
