Aberdeen today signed Republic of Ireland international midfielder Stephen Gleeson on a two year contract.
The 29-year-old was a free agent having left Ipswich Town at the end of the season.
He has agreed to pen a deal until 2020 when the Reds return for pre-season training later this week.
Gleeson has been capped four times and is Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes’ third signing of the summer.
Midfielder Chris Forrester has been secured on a three-year deal from Peterborough United and Hamilton Accies midfielder Lewis Ferguson also joined the Reds.
McInnes said: “I am delighted to bring Stephen’s experience to Aberdeen.
“He’s exactly the type of player we wanted for that role.
“He’s got the qualities to be a very good player, both on and off the pitch and as a club we’ll be able to give him what he demands of himself.
“Following the news about Lewis and then Chris a couple of weeks ago, I’m excited to see what these players can bring to the club.’
Gleeson made more than 200 appearances for MK Dons before spending three and half seasons at Birmingham City in the Championship.
He made his first senior Republic of Ireland appearance in 2007 and was involved again with the squad in 2017, scoring in a friendly against Mexico.
