The 18-year-old, who can play on either wing, has been added to training sessions with the first team squad recently having been a regular scorer for the Robins' under-18s.

"We're delighted for young Wes to have accepted our offer and he's very happy about it," manager Derek McInnes told the club's official website.

"He's developed ever so well over the last few months, and we see real potential for improvement in him going forward. Now the deal is done he can just concentrate on his football.

"He's quick, he's getting stronger all the time and he's decent in the air. He's had good experience in the Under-18s and more recently the Under-21s."

Earlier this month 15-year-old Wales youth international Joe Morrell signed scholarship terms with the club, with the aim of turning professional with the Ashton Gate club, despite interest from Premier League sides.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
