Hamilton today confirmed they have agreed to sell club captain Michael Devlin to Aberdeen.
The 24-year-old was today in the Granite City to discuss terms on a permanent deal and undergo a medical.
Devlin is out of contract with Hamilton at the end of the season and Dons boss Derek McInnes will make him his third signing of the January transfer window.
The centre-back is currently out injured with a cruciate ligament injury and is not expected to return to action until March.
However, McInnes wants Devlin to continue his rehabilitation at Pittodrie and be available to play in the latter stages of the campaign.
Hamilton manager Martin Canning today said: “Michael is away up to Aberdeen today.
“The club agreed a deal with Aberdeen so he is on his way today for a medical and to discuss terms.
“I spoke to Ronnie (MacDonald, Hamilton chairman) late last night and he said Aberdeen handled everything well and they came to an agreement.
“Ronnie said the club had agreed a figure and that was it done.
“Michael is out of contract at the end of the season and getting something for him now is better than getting nothing then.
“So it is good business for the club.”
