Boss Derek McInnes today confirmed the Dons could raid England for loan signings again for the new campaign.
Dons fans will tomorrow see McInnes’ summer arrivals in action for the first time when the Reds face Brechin at Glebe Park (2pm).
Aberdeen have beaten Hearts (1-0) and Welsh champions TNS (3-0) in closed door friendlies.
Brechin will be the first, and last, open game before Thursday’s Europa League first qualifying round first leg against CS Fola Esch.
McInnes has secured five new signings and is targeting more.
And he could look to loan deals in England again following the success of Danny Ward from Liverpool last season.
He said: “The signings we have made we feel will help us, but we are still not finished yet.
“The majority of English clubs where we do a lot of our work don’t go back until the first or second week in July.
“A lot of clubs look at us as a good place to put young loan players.
“So while you might have had conversations about players any decisions on them is still a long way away. We will hold our nerve with certain ones.”
The Red Army will get their first glimpse of signings Jayden Stocky (Bournemouth), Callum Morris (Dundee United), Joe Lewis (Cardiff) and Neil Alexander (Hearts) at Brechin tomorrow.
Miles Storey will not join the Dons until July 1 when his Swindon contract expires.
The UEFA transfer deadline for the Europa League first round closed on Monday but clubs have dispensation to bring in a maximum of one new signing up until Wednesday.
“I am comfortable I have the squad now that can get us through the first round,” said McInnes.
Jonny Hayes came off with a knee knock in the win over Hearts but is expected to be fit.
