PAUL Quinn has signed for the Dons this evening.
The former Ross County defender put pen to paper on a two-year deal at Pittodrie.
The deal looked to be off this morning, but Quinn made a dramatic U-turn and travelled to the Granite City to complete his medical.
The centre-back said: “Aberdeen is huge club and I can’t wait to get started.
“When I heard Derek McInnes was interested in signing me, it was something of a no-brainer while playing in Europe was another major factor.”
The 29 year old came through the youth ranks at Motherwell, playing 161 games for the Steelmen before moving south to Cardiff City in 2009 for a fee of £300,000.
He made 46 appearances for the Welsh club before joining Doncaster Rovers, where he played 73 times between 2012 and 2014.
He was one of a number of players who was out of contract at Ross County this summer.
Quinn becomes the Dons’ third signing so far, with Graeme Shinnie and Joe Nuttall arriving this month.
Boss Derek McInnes added: “I’m delighted to sign Paul, who has been a major influence on Ross County’s form in the second half of the season. We’re looking forward to him having a positive influence on our team.
“We’ve watched Paul on several occasions in the last few months and the key qualities he’ll bring to the team are his experience, leadership and competitiveness.
“You cannot have too many leaders on the pitch.”
