Aberdeen FC can this afternoon announce the signing of Chris Forrester.
The midfielder will join The Dons from Peterborough United on a three year deal.
The 25-year-old Irishman has made over 100 appearances for Peterbrough, captaining the side during the 2016/17 season.
He started his senior career at Bohemians and moved to fellow League of Ireland side St Patrick's Athletic before moving to England in 2015.
An Irish U21 internationalist, he received his first call up to the Republic of Ireland senior squad in 2016.
Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes was very happy to secure a player he has long admired.
'Chris is a player who has always caught my eye. He can play in a variety of positions, but he handles the ball extremely well and he will bring us flexibility in the midfield area.
'We've been aware of him for a while and hopefully he sees Aberdeen as an opportunity to give impetus to his career. I'm delighted to welcome him to the club.'
Aberdeen Football Club can confirm we have agreed to terminate Chris Forrester's contract.
Manager, Derek McInnes commented:
"It's with a lot of sadness and regret that we've terminated Chris's contract. At his request we've allowed him to be back with his family in Ireland."
"He's had a lot to contend with in his personal life and as a club, we have an understanding of the situation and we wish him well with his future career."
Everyone at the club also wishes Chris all the very best in the future.
