Aberdeen have announced the signing of former Hearts winger Andrew Driver on a short term deal until the end of the season.
Driver had been training with the Pittodrie side after a spell in the MLS with Houston Dynamo.
Speaking to the official Aberdeen website, manager Derek McInnes said: “I’m delighted to get Andy on board. Hopefully he will make the most of this opportunity we’ve given him.
“During his time with us I believe there has been enough to suggest that he can be a good addition to our squad.”
After signing on with the Dons, Driver added: “I am absolutely delighted with the move. I have obviously only got a short period of time to prove myself. I have eleven weeks to hopefully work hard and contribute to a team that are doing well. I have really enjoyed the short time I have been here. I can see it is a really really good club. It is run well. It is now up to me to go out and show what I can do.
“I went to America, kind of out of sight and out of mind. I really enjoyed it and I think while I was out there I improved as a player. America was a great experience. The MLS is an underrated league. It is definitely up and coming. It was very tough. There was a lot of travelling involved.
“The last couple of years in Scotland was a tough time and I maybe didn’t reach the level that I wanted to but I’ve come back now and I’ve got a renewed vigour and I want to go and prove a point really. I feel I have some unfinished business in Scotland.
“It was well known that I was prone to a few injuries when I was younger. Since I was out there and the work I did, I never even missed a training session last year. So me coming back and being in the situation where injuries aren’t an issue I feel I can go and give 100% in every training session then it will make me a better player in general.
“I knew before I came here that the team was going to be a top team. In the short time I have been in Aberdeen there is a real buzz about the training. There is some top quality players in the squad. I am confident in my own ability.”
