Signing Info:

Aberdeen FC can this morning confirm it has completed the signing of Ryan McLaughlin on loan from Liverpool, subject to international clearance. The 20 year Northern Ireland defender will join the Dons until January 2016. Ryan joined Liverpool at 16 years old and most recently enjoyed a loan spell with English League One side Barnsley. He was at Oakwell during the second half of last season and made nine appearances for Yorkshire club. The right back made his international debut as a substitute against Uruguay, making him the first Liverpool player to represent Northern Ireland in 78 years. Commenting on the signing, manager Derek McInnes said: "I'm really pleased we've managed to bring Ryan to the Club. He's a player who has always impressed us and will give us good options in the months ahead. Ryan has the quality needed to play with us at Aberdeen and we are looking forward to working closely with him. Ryan's eagerness to join us over others also give us great encouragement."
