Aberdeen Sign Jay Emmanuel-Thomas On Two Year Deal

Aberdeen have signed forward Jay Emmanuel-Thomas on a two year deal.

The 30-year-old striker, who is a product of the Arsenal FC Academy, will join the Club on a two-year deal once the transfer window opens at the start of June.

The versatile player brings a wealth of experience to the Dons having played in the English Championship and League One, before leading the line in the SPFL Premiership with Livingston this season.

Stephen Glass told the club website:  “We’re pleased to add Jay to our squad. His arrival is a sign of intent and marks the first piece of the jigsaw as we look to re-build our front line.

“He brings a lot of attacking flexibility and can play in numerous positions as we look to add firepower to the group we have here.

“We’re working diligently behind the scenes and assessing players who fit the profile we are looking for here at Aberdeen.

“It is imperative we take this opportunity to add the necessary quality of players and I look forward to enhancing our attacking options in the coming weeks.”

Jay is looking forward to being a part of a new era at Pittodrie as manager Stephen Glass shapes his squad for the season ahead.

“It feels great to be an Aberdeen player. Within football, Aberdeen has always had a very good reputation and to be involved with such a big Club is a great feeling.

“Based on games I’ve played against Aberdeen, watching the style of play, what the set up is like behind the scenes and knowing where the manager wants to take the Club, of course it was something I wanted to be part of.”
