Aberdeen Football Club has announced that they completed the signing of the 24-year-old striker Stevie May from the English Championship club Preston North End F.C.
According to the club, they signed May, who has been allocated squad number 18, on a four year contract at Pittodrie for an undisclosed fee.
Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes said that he is happy to have the Scotland international.
“I’m obviously delighted to get Stevie on board and he’s a player I’ve enjoyed working with in the past and have been keen to work with again. To get a 24 year old international player on a four year deal is a great piece of business by the Club and I’d like to thank the Board for their assistance in making it happen.”
May was given his first team debut by McInnes as a 16 year old at St. Johnstone F.C as a substitute over Airdie United in May 2009 and the Dons has made an offer last June but the deal was delayed because of managerial change from Preston club.
“The manager has made no secret about trying to get me in the past, which is flattering, and it’s good to finally get the deal done which I think is right for both parties and I just can’t wait to get started.” May said
