Dave Cormack this evening has confirmed the signing of defender, David Bates from Hamburg SV on a three year deal.
Bates spent last season on loan to Cercle Brug having previously been on a season long loan with Sheffield Wednesday during the 2019/20 season.
Stephen Glass said: “I’m pleased to add David to our group. He is a young, proven, Scotland international and his arrival further increases the number of young Scottish international players we have here at Pittodrie, all of whom are going to play a huge part in our future.
“He is here amid strong interest from other teams, particularly with the transfer window due to close shortly, so I’m delighted he has chosen Aberdeen as the place to further his career. We are eager to start working with David and look forward to seeing the impact he will have on the squad.”
