Former Aberdeen favourite Kari Arnason has reportedly agreed a deal to return to the club.
Reports in Cyprus, where the defender currently plies his trade with Omonia Nicosia, suggest the Iceland international has reached an agreement to cut short his contract and sign up at Pittodrie.
The 34-year-old has made no secret of his desire to return to the Granite City and remains a popular figure following a spell with the club in 2011, where he made a total of 33 appearances.
A verbal agreement is understood to have been reached between Arnason and the backroom team at Pittodrie with only formalities and a medical left to be sorted out.
Speaking to the Evening Express about the idea of a Dons return, Arnason said: “I would definitely be interested in coming back because I love the club, love everything about it, love Scottish people and I love Aberdeen as a city, so I would love to come back there’s no question about that.
“I’m attracted to Aberdeen because I’ve played there before and know what the club is like.
“I’m also attracted because it is a growing team who are trying to compete with Celtic in Scotland and excel in Europe.
“The fans are unbelievable and they were very, very supportive of me, even after I left the club.
“When Iceland have started to do well I have felt the support of Aberdeen fans more than any other club I have ever played for.
“They are very loyal fans and I would love to pay them back.”
