Connor Ripley: Middlesbrough are prepared to let him leave on loan

The Dons are looking to bolster their keeping options ahead of the 2013/14 campaign and will cast an eye over Ripley before looking to put a short-term deal in place.

The 20-year-old shot-stopper has figured in the senior fold at Boro, but remains some way down the first team pecking order at the Riverside Stadium.

He was allowed to take in a loan spell at Oxford United in 2011/12, so would not be entering the unknown where he to link up with Aberdeen.

Ripley is the son of former Blackburn Rovers and England winger Stuart Ripley and was included in Peter Taylor's squad for the U20 World Cup in Turkey this summer.
