Aberdeen are set to complete a loan switch for Birmingham City forward Greg Stewart as early as this evening after the player passed his Pittodrie medical.
The 27-year-old is expected to become Derek McInnes’ third summer signing after travelling to the Granite City this morning to seal the move.
The Dons have so far seen off competition from a number of other Scottish sides including Hearts, Hibs and former club Dundee to secure Stewart’s services.
Blues boss Harry Redknapp previous claimed that no Scottish team could afford the player following his £500,000 move to the Dens last summer.
However, Stewart now looks set to link up with former Inverness midfielder Greg Stewart and Celtic playmaker Ryan Christie as McInnes’ Dons revolution gains pace.
Scotland international Shaun Maloney has also been linked with a move to Pittodrie and is expected to make a decision on his future in the next few days.
The former Celtic star has been offered a two-year deal with the Dons but would likely have to take a pay-cut if he turns down a season-long deal with current club Hull City.
The Dons are also closing in on a move for highly rated Stranraer midfielder Kyle Turner.
The 19-year-old was on trial at Pittodrie in February and is expected to become part of Paul Sheerin’s under-20 Dons squad.
