Connor Ripley: Wants to try his luck in the SPL

Sky Sports revealed on Thursday that the 20-year-old was set to spend time training with the Dons ahead of a proposed switch to Pittodrie.

He has now returned to Boro after two days working with Derek McInnes' men.

Ripley hopes he will soon be back in the Dons fold, with the England U20 international eager to get important game time under his belt.

He said in the Daily Record: "Hopefully I can get this loan move up and running and can play for Aberdeen, who are a big club with a big history.

"I'm going home for a week but hopefully I will be back up again. I want to be here for the rest of the season."

McInnes is looking to bring further fresh faces into his squad, but is delighted to have already tied up deals for Barry Robson, Gregg Wylde, Willo Flood and Calvin Zola.

He said: "We have brought players to the team to try to bring in competition.

"I know pre-season is about fitness but it is also important for the players to try to grab an opportunity."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
