Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes hopes to have James Wilson ready to start games after the international break.
Wilson made his Dons debut with a 20-minute cameo against Hibernian on Saturday after only one day of training at Pittodrie.
The 22-year-old picked up an ankle injury in his final game for Manchester United under-23s, where he was substituted at half-time in a 2-2 draw with their counterparts from Fulham. He signed for the Dons three days later.
McInnes hoped to have gotten more of an impact out of him against the Hibees, with the hosts throwing everything forward in an effort to grab an equaliser.
The Dons boss was frustrated with his side’s choice of pass, as it failed to get Wilson into threatening areas.
The Dons face Kilmarnock next week before the international break, which should afford the former Sheffield United and Brighton and Hove Albion loanee the chance to get up to speed with his new team-mates.
McInnes said: “I thought with Hibs pushing up with a high line, once he’s away you wouldn’t catch him. I was disappointed with our choice of pass.
“He trained fully on Friday and not had a lot of competitive football. He played four bit-part games for Manchester United under-23s and they’re nowhere near the level you’d get in a competitive game, so he’s still a bit behind us.
“But it was good for him to get on the pitch – he’s had a look at us and Scottish football.
“All that he’s taken in and if we get him some minutes against Kilmarnock and do some work over the international break, hopefully he’s a wee bit closer to having the impact we know he can.
“We need to get use to having that real speed at the top end of the pitch. I’m excited to get him in the team.”
Saturday’s game saw Tommie Hoban notch his first goal for the club since joining on loan from
Watford, after he had missed time with a knee injury following the Europa League qualifiers with Burnley.
Midfielder Niall McGinn’s calf problem prevented McInnes being able to use him at Easter Road, while winger Scott Wright picked up an injury in training during last week.
