Norwich City have today completed the signing of Kenny McLean from Aberdeen, although the midfielder will return to the Dons on loan for the remainder of the season.
The Scotland international had been courted by SPL rivals Rangers over the past few months, however he has opted to join the Canaries who have signed him for an undisclosed fee on a three-and-a-half year deal.
The 26-year old was out of contract in the summer and had told Aberdeen chiefs that he would be moving on, therefore it should be a fairly small fee for Norwich.
McLean, who is left-footed and known for his ability on the ball, revealed that it was the way Daniel Farke wants his side to play that convinced him to join the Championship club.
“Norwich has the right feel about it. After watching them on the pitch, it seems perfect for the style I want to play,” he told the official site.
“The manager’s philosophy suits me and the club is right for me at this time of my career. It’s good to have a pre-season in the summer with the new team and with the manager.”
This is a smart signing from Norwich as they will have signed McLean on the cheap given his contract status.
Loaning the midfielder back may seem a bit strange as he will have been able to make an impact already but clearly Farke thinks he can do without McLean at the minute.
It’s now up to the player to end his career with Aberdeen in style and look forward to life in the Championship from the summer.
