Aberdeen have signed Leeds United striker Ryan Edmondson on a short-term loan until January.
Edmondson goes straight into Saturday’s squad for the game against Rangers and will provide cover for injured strike duo Sam Cosgrove and Curtis Main.
Manager Derek McInnes said: “I’m delighted Ryan is here.
“His eagerness and willingness to come to Aberdeen is really encouraging. He is a player we’ve known about for a while and always felt he had the correct attributes to add to our squad.
“With the injuries to Sam and Curtis we clearly would have been short of two of our key players so I must thank the board for their co-operation in getting Ryan here, during what is a financially tough period for the club.
“I’ve no doubt Ryan will have a positive impact during his time with us.”
Bruce Anderson was the only senior fit striker on the Dons books and will feature against the Gers at Pittodrie.

Edmondson is a 19-year-old England under-19 international who has found game-time under Marcelo Bielsa at Elland Road hard to come by.
He has made just two senior appearances for Leeds after starting his career at York City.
