Norwich City have completed the signing of midfielder, Kenny McLean from Aberdeen the club have announced
The 26 year old can play either centrally or on the left of midfield, has two caps for Scotland and will be immediately loaned back to the Dons for the remainder of the season.
The lad has signed a three and a half year deal with the Canaries for the usual “undisclosed fee”. It`s being reported, depending on where you look, that the fee is between £150-300k.
Many may ask why we`ve done this deal now when he would`ve been free in the summer? Well, it seems to me as though paying a small fee now ensures he`s wearing yellow & green next season rather than any other colour. The loan deal will no doubt have also helped sweeten things for Aberdeen.
With Harrison Reed and Alex Tettey both likely to leave in the summer, this is forward planning.
Welcome to Norwich, Kenny.
