Review: Eight summer additions who boosted Aberdeen squad with variety of strengths

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes.

How have Derek McInnes’ summer additions fared so far?

Stevie May

Aberdeen splashed out £400,000 to secure the striker on a four-year deal.

The Scotland cap made an immediate impact with two goals in his Pittodrie debut as the Dons beat Dundee 2-1.

Has scored four goals but has been out recently with an ankle injury.

Gary Mackay-Steven

The winger was secured for £150,000 from Celtic and has scored five times.

Underlined his class with a sensational shift in the 4-1 defeat of Hibs where he hit a hat-trick. The Dons stuck by him after he was fished from a river after a night out.

Kari Arnason

Icelandic cap returned on a year-long deal for a second spell at Pittodrie. Has started 13 games and scored three times for the Dons.

The World Cup-bound defender, 35, recently confirmed he wants to sign an extended deal with Aberdeen.

Greg Stewart

The on-loan Birmingham City attacker has recently rediscovered the form that saw him short-listed twice for the PFA Scotland Player of the Year award while with Dundee.

Played in 21 games and scored a vital goal against NK Siroki Brijeg.

Ryan Christie

A stand-out performer, the on-loan Celtic attacker secured his debut Scotland cap earlier this season.

Five goals this campaign from 23 starts. His presence is sorely missed against Celtic as he is unable to face his parent club as part of the loan.

Greg Tansey

The midfielder joined on a three-year deal from Inverness Caley Thistle.

His impact has been restricted due to a groin injury and hernia surgery.

Has made 10 starts and is set to return from injury after the Premiership winter break.

Dominic Ball

The on-loan Rotherham defender has made just three starts with the most recent the 3-0 loss away to Celtic.

Ball had endured more than two months without game time before he was pitched in against Celtic as Shay Logan was ruled out through illness.

Nicky Maynard

The striker has commanded £6.75m in transfer fees in his career and signed a one-year deal with the Dons.

However, the former West Ham and Cardiff centre-forward has yet to score. He has made four starts, with the last on September 16.
