Dons boss Derek McInnes today admitted he would be happy with his new-look squad if the summer transfer window slammed shut now.
The busiest window of McInnes’ Pittodrie career closes at midnight on Wednesday.
He has signed seven players and does not, barring any injury problems against Partick at Firhill today, anticipate a late signing influx.
Aberdeen received £1.3 million during the summer for the transfer of Jonny Hayes to Celtic and that money was redirected towards the squad.
Scotland cap Stevie May was secured in a £400,000 swoop from Preston North End and the Reds also splashed £100,000 to land Gary Mackay-Steven from Celtic.
Permanent deals were also struck for Greg Tansey, Icelandic international Kari Arnason and Nicky Maynard.
Ryan Christie (Celtic) and Greg Stewart (Birmingham) were both secured on season-long loan deals.
McInnes, whose side are today aiming for a fifth straight domestic win, said: “ If the window shuts with the squad I have now, I would be happy. Like any other manager I would always like to get one or two more in to make it more rounded and have that cover for every eventuality.
“However, the money is spent and I think we have used that money wisely. We have made some strong signings and I am full of encouragement that we are well equipped for the season ahead.”
Whether there is any late movement in the transfer window could hinge on whether the Dons remain injury-free as it closes.
They have only one game, away to Partick today, to negotiate until then.
McInnes said: “There will be some young lads potentially going out on loan to get some game time.
“One or two players who are not getting regular football might go out.
“We will keep our ear to the ground to see what may or may not be available but if it shuts with this squad I would be happy as this squad is shaping up very well.
“Hopefully, we can round off this round of games injury-free going into the international break and also get another three points.”
The reshaped Aberdeen squad have raced to a 100% opening in the Premiership having taken a maximum nine points from the opening three fixtures.
Aberdeen will today go head to head with a struggling Partick side that has yet to earn a point so far this season.
Despite the winning start McInnes admits the Reds were below par in the 2-1 defeat of Dundee last weekend.
He has demanded an immediate improvement in Glasgow later today.
“Against Dundee the players all worked extremely hard and no one hid but our play could have been a bit slicker,” he said.
“We have improvements to make and hopefully we will see that against Partick today.
“I want to see a better performance that will hopefully get us the three points.
“It is still early in the season and we know there is room for improvement.
“If you can keep winning games and strive for improvement that is the sign of a good team.”
Following today’s clash at Partick the Premiership will go into a two-week shutdown for international fixtures. No Aberdeen player has been named in Scotland boss Gordon Strachan’s 27-man squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Lithuania and Malta.
Although disappointed at the omission, McInnes aims to make maximum use of the international break for a squad that started in the Europa League with a tie against Siroki Brijeg on July 13.
He said: “The players will get a few days off next week. From a selfish point of view at least we will get them recharged as they’ve been back for two months and we have to get ready to face Hearts.”
