Aberdeen today signed former Dundee United centre-back Callum Morris on a one-year contract.
The 26-year-old was a free agent having been released by the Tannadice club following relegation to the Championship at the end of last season.
Former Newcastle United trainee Morris will join up with the Dons as they begin pre-season at a St Andrews training camp.
Morris made 38 starts for Dundee United during his two seasons at Tannadice.
The stopper is Dons boss Derek McInnes’ third signing of the summer having secured strikers Miles Storey (Swindon) and Jayden Stockley (Bournemouth) on pre-contracts.
McInnes aims to further strengthen by adding a keeper before UEFA’s signing deadline on Monday for the Europa League first qualifying round which kicks off on June 30.
Aberdeen have only two senior keepers signed, with Republic of Ireland U21 cap Danny Rogers returning after a loan spell at Falkirk.
Australian U23 cap Aaron Lennox started in the final game of last season, a 4-0 loss to Ross County at Pittodrie.
McInnes aims to bring in an experienced first choice stopper and has been linked with a number of targets from south of the border.
Morris will be in contention to make his Dons bow in the friendly against Brechin City on Sunday, June 26, at Glebe Park (2pm). That is the only friendly before Aberdeen kick off in the Europa League.
Morris played for Blyth Spartans and Morpeth Town before re-igniting his career in Scotland with Dunfermline.
He was pivotal in the Pars’ promotion to the Championship before signing for United.
In 2015 Morris scored the equaliser for Dundee United against then holders Aberdeen in the League Cup semi-final at Hampden.
Dundee United would go on to win 2-1,with Morris starting in the 2-0 final loss to Celtic.
Morris is the latest addition as Dons boss McInnes looks to launch another Premiership title challenge.
